Delivering a new kind of lawyer

We know that as employers of legal professionals the success of your business depends on the quality of the advice your people provide, and their ability to understand and engage with your clients and their challenges.

The CILEX Professional Qualification (CPQ) has been developed to deliver legal professionals at every level of the organisation who not only have sound legal knowledge but also have the practical, commercial and interpersonal skills to add real value from the outset to your business and your client relationships.

The three-stage structure of CPQ is designed to produce legal professionals that meet the competencies of different job roles at each stage – from CILEX Paralegal at CPQ Foundation stage to full CILEX Lawyer at Professional stage. 

The design of CPQ also means that you will be able to monitor the developing competence of your trainees because of the requirement for them to have their professional experience validated at each stage by their employer. In this way, you can ensure that they are ready to progress, if they want to, or are fully competent at the level at which they wish to remain.

CPQ can also be used to support the delivery of both the Paralegal and the Chartered Legal Executive Apprenticeships. We will be advising our training providers how this can be done. Please consult with your chosen training provider if you intend to keep using your apprenticeship levy to train and develop your staff.
