Legal services Apprenticeship set to transform professional pathways
This is a trailblazer programme, which means groups of law and legal employers have come together to agree the Apprenticeship’s programme standards so they are specifically aligned to the sector’s job roles. The qualification has also been developed with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) as both an insight into the legal profession and a mechanism that provides learners with university-level and higher education progression opportunities.
“BMet has long recognised that employers want more of an input in how their recruitment and training programmes are designed and delivered. They also want to do more to match their employees’ skills and productivity levels to those of their peers,” said Rebecca Hayes, Director of Sales at BMet. “This trailblazer Apprenticeship fully delivers on these objectives, creating an array of professional development opportunities to benefit the employee, employer and the industry as a whole.”
The Apprenticeship is a structured programme which combines work-based learning with academic studies. It consists of the CILEx Level 3 Diploma in Providing Legal Services and the Level 3 Certificate in Civil Litigation. It includes an Introduction to Legal Practice, Client Care Skills, Tort and Civil Litigation.
“The paralegal Apprenticeship forms part of a portfolio of programmes BMet’s Greater Birmingham Professional Services Academy has designed specifically for the business and professional services sector, all of which have a clear focus on tackling sector skills shortages and future-proofing the industry,” Rebecca Hayes added.
