Apprenticeships in Legal Services

What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are ideal for younger people starting out on a new career, an adult looking to make a career change, or an employee who would like to develop their skills and knowledge to gain a promotion. Apprenticeships are flexible and are designed to offer a structured programme of learning to fit around the needs of the individual and the employer.

Learning takes place mainly during employment through the development of ‘on the job’ skills. However there is an 'off the job' training element which usually takes place away from work but on the employer's premises, or at a local college or a specialist training organisation, or through distance learning providers. This off-the-job training is usually done on day release or over a number of days in a block. Both the on and off the job elements of the apprenticeship lead to nationally-recognised qualifications which are awarded by CILEx.

There are two levels of Apprenticeships in Legal Services that students can embark upon. The Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services and the Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship in Legal Services.
