Law firm announces major apprenticeship investment as seven pass with flying colours

7 March 2014

Some of the first legal apprentices in the county have been honoured by law firm Browne Jacobson after successfully completing their Level 2 Apprenticeship in Legal Administration.

George Denton, Ryan Wise, Megan Sedgwick, Rudy Stewart, Helena Culligan, Ellis Thompson and Sophia Atkin were presented with their certificates by Partner Susan Mabbott during National Apprenticeship Week (3-7 March).

The seven were among the first to join Browne Jacobsons pioneering legal apprenticeship programme back in 2012 which has been delivered in partnership with CILEx Law School and Vision Apprenticeships.

The firm has also announced that it is extending its apprentice contracts until September 2016 and investing over £37,000 by enrolling all current 13 apprentices on the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services.

The Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services will also be delivered in partnership with CILEx Law School, the wholly owned college of The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).

The qualification contributes towards the first stage in qualifying as a Chartered Legal Executive Lawyer and will see the apprentices study a range of areas including tort, civil litigation and client care skills.

All the apprentices are based in the firms Technical Claims, Medical Negligence and Fraud teams in Nottingham and Birmingham.

Susan Mabbott, Partner and one of the architects of Browne Jacobsons apprenticeship scheme, said:

"Congratulations to all seven who have completed their Level 2 course. We place immense emphasis on the development of people of all ages and are delighted to be able to extend our apprenticeship contracts until 2016.

"As local employers we have a responsibility to the communities we serve and what better way to do that by creating sustainable job opportunities through an apprenticeship programme."

Sally Swift, Legal Services Manager at Browne Jacobson, commented:

"Browne Jacobsons scheme was the first to be launched by a law firm in the county and it has been going from strength to strength. Apprenticeships are a fantastic path for anyone who has completed their GCSE or A levels and wants to combine valuable work experience whilst studying for a nationally recognised qualification."

CILEx Law School Business Director Jenny Pelling added:

"Browne Jacobson spearheaded the legal apprenticeship initiative with CILEx Law School and continues to be a leading supporter of this route into law. We work closely with them in the delivery of knowledge and competence to their apprentices through regular in house seminars and assessment visits, and look forward to meeting the further intake of this years school leavers in the autumn."
