Future of Legal Employment

By March 16, 2016January 29th, 2021Employment for Business

Apprenticeships are high on the employment agenda following the government’s ambitious commitment to deliver three million across all sectors of the economy by the end of this parliament – the equivalent of more than one apprentice starting every minute over the next five years.

In the legal sector, the focus in England is on the three new employer-led ‘Trailblazer’ apprenticeships in law. From September, these will enable candidates aged 18 and over to undertake an apprenticeship lasting from two to six years to become a paralegal or legal executive or to qualify as a solicitor.

With the cost of university increasing we need to encourage affordable ways of training our future talent. Therefore we need to look at engaging with apprenticeships. Identifying the right talent at an early stage while providing encouragement and training in the workplace can produce people who are capable of delivering quality and economical business advice.
