We're building a learning culture for our employees.

At Glaisyers ETL we offer a self-paced learning environment for all our employees.

How do I book a training session?

Simply select a course from our programme detailed above, and we will deliver this course to you live in-house or online. You will receive an email confirmation once your booking has been successful.

Is staff training mandatory?

Some Compliance Courses will be mandatory for all staff. This will be indicated next to the training topic name with an “M”.

What are my obligations in relation to training?

If you are a Fee Earner please see the section below on Continuing Competence

Continuing Competence

From 1 November 2016, the SRA moved away from 16 hours CPD per year to all Solicitors being required to undertake continuing competence as per SRA guidance. Solicitors are now required to reflect on the quality of their practice and identify any learning and development needs. You can then address these needs to make sure your knowledge and skills are up to date and that you are competent to practice. Further guidance on this can be found at https://www.sra.org.uk/solicitors/resources/continuing-competence/cpd/continuing-competence-toolkit/

Please use the following form to log any development [insert link] It is each FE’s responsibility to complete their own development plan and these will be needed to be submitted to [name] by [date] in order for a practice certificate to be obtained.

Why am I being asked to attend a course if I am not a Fee Earner?

The SRA dictates that some compliance training is mandatory for all colleagues in a law firm. We will also hold some Glaisyers sessions which we feel everyone will find useful.

What if the session I wish to attend is fully booked?

Each course will have a number of dates to choose from. In the event that all course dates are fully booked, all our sessions will be recorded. Although for some courses attendance in person will be mandatory. Please email janet.westwell@glaisyers.com if you have any further questions.

The benefits
  • The training will be both interactive and engaging throughout.
  • The training option provides you with the flexibility to avoid peak times of activity in the week, month, and/or year
  • You can select from a wide selection of courses to meet your needs.
  • We issue post-course questionnaires to ensure the training met your expectations.

Optional Training Resources.

Optional training sessions can be run as individual or group sessions and can cover a range of practice areas/topics or focus on a specific area of law.

Please contact janet.westwell@glaisyers.com if you require additional support.
