The Council for Licensed Conveyancers is reviewing paths to qualification as a Licensed Conveyancer to make sure they fit the needs of legal businesses. The Conveyancing Association is supporting this initiative.
The CLC is looking for representatives from firms that train Licensed Conveyancers or employ students on the route to qualification as a Licensed Conveyancer. They are asked to consider being part of a ‘trailblazer’ group working to assess the demand for and viability of an apprenticeship route for Licensed Conveyancers. The group will work with the Department of Business, Industry and Skills (BIS) and the new Sector Skills Council for legal and financial services.
This will involve quite a lot of your time in the first quarter of 2014 as the group works to develop a two-page summary of the standards for an apprenticeship qualification for submission to BIS. That work will begin with a briefing meeting, possibly by conference call, in early January. There’s a fuller briefing note on the apprenticeship trailblazers scheme here.
If you would like to be involved in this exciting project, the CLC would be grateful for an initial expression of interest by 10 December. To register your interest or find out more, please contact Claire Richardson at email@example.com or 01245 349599.
