Our Paralegal Trailblazer Legal Apprenticeship are a fantastic opportunity for ambitious school /college leavers or people looking for a new career in the legal sector. You will gain valuable legal experience at one of the UK’s largest legal businesses, work towards a nationally recognised qualification, and get paid at the same time.

What does the Legal Apprenticeship involve?

Legal Apprentices will either work in our Legal Services Centre, or in one of our insurance or commercial legal teams and, outside of London, you will receive a starting salary of £12,000 plus other benefits.

Throughout the apprenticeship you will have the support of your team members, supervisor and a dedicated mentor. During the course of the two year apprenticeship you will gradually be exposed to more complex legal work.

What will I study?

Legal Apprentices will work towards achieving a Level 3 Paralegal Apprenticeship Standard, which will be taught by BPP and we will cover all training costs. In addition BPP will provide you with the opportunity to study for a certificate in Higher Education, a qualification which is equivalent to the first year of a degree.

This Paralegal Apprenticeship Standard qualification is the first of its kind and can lead to qualification as a solicitor. BPP will deliver the formal teaching for our apprenticeship, along with providing a dedicated assessor for each Legal Apprentice.
