This Modern Apprenticeship helps new entrants develop the skills and knowledge they need to work in paralegal practice. It’s suitable for entry level staff who will work under the supervision of a solicitor or similarly qualified person. Apprentices will learn the useful technical skills without the need to become a solicitor.
Your employee will study for a qualification in Paralegal Practice at SCQF level 7.
There are no set entry requirements for this apprenticeship, but candidates may be asked to complete disclosure checks.
After completing this Modern Apprenticeship, your employees will have the skills and knowledge they need for a range of paralegal roles, and will be eligible to register as a paralegal with the Law Society of Scotland and the Scottish Paralegal Association.
We contribute towards training costs
