How long does it take to complete the L6 apprenticeship?
The L6 apprenticeship takes a minimum of 18 months to complete.

How is the learner assessed in the L6 apprenticeship?
All modules are assessed with a 3hr formal exam completed under exam conditions, the answers are uploaded onto the Online Learning Platform. There is an end point assessment which consists of a 3 hour online scenario based test and a portfolio of evidence along with a professional discussion based on the portfolio.

How are the courses delivered?
All resources can be found online via The Conveyancing Academy online learning platform. The course is delivered online through remote learning where the student will have constant access to all resources, assessment and learning support.

Do the students have access to tutor support?
Each student will have a personal 1-1 tutor who will introduce themselves, the course outline and how they will be assessed. All tutors are qualified conveyancers who will provide support and feedback throughout the course. Students will receive a review with their tutor every 12 weeks.

How are students assessed?
All assessments are either open book or under exam conditions. Open book assessments will have a submission date where the learner will upload their work to the online learning platform ready for marking. Students will be either required to sit their examination under the Supervision of their Principal in their Office (and in accordance with our Invigilation Policy) or will be required to attend our office to sit the examination.

What are the costs of the apprenticeships?
The cost to the business is either 5% or 10% of the total course fee. For businesses with under 50 employees the fee is £450 and for businesses with over 50 employees the fee is £900. The government will fund the remaining course fee to a total of £9000.

Are there exemptions for learners with prior qualifications?
If a learner has completed any prior qualifications such as a Law degree, LLB or CILEX modules they will be exempt from certain modules. Once we have proof of these prior qualifications we can assess and inform which modules need to be completed in order to complete the course.

How much study time are the learners entitled to?
Learners are entitled to 20% off the job training time. This does not mean it is 1 day a week of studying during working hours. Any time where the learner is being supervised or in team meetings, training, seminars, workshops - all of this time counts towards their off the job training time.

If I don't want to take the Apprenticeship route or I only have a specific module to sit can I still study to be a conveyancer with the Conveyancing Academy?
The Academy also offers the Level 4 and Level 6 qualifications as stand-alone diplomas to be studied at your own pace. These modules are individually priced and companies are still able to take advantage of the deferred payment scheme. Please see the online prospectus for more information.
