Resources for Legal Secretary Qualifications

Standard Qualification Fee

To assist learners and training providers, CILEX has set out the standard qualification fee payable for Level 2 Legal Secretaries and Level 3 Legal Secretaries qualifications.  The standard qualification fee is the sum of all mandatory fees that must be paid for the qualification and is based on learners passing the external assessment (including, where applicable, the online assessment) at the first attempt.  If a further attempt is needed, an additional fee is payable.
