Each student is allocated a Conveyancing Academy Tutor to guide and tutor them through the apprenticeship. Employer legal practices are asked to appoint a training Principal to oversee the training of the student apprentice. Our Tutors will work with both the student and the training Principal to ensure the academic training and framework of Conveyancing competencies are achieved throughout the apprenticeship. Video conference one to ones are available with the tutor every 6-8 weeks. Tutors are also available by telephone and email.
Online video tutorials and seminars, delivered by Conveyancing Academy experts, form a key element of the apprenticeship training programme and assist in the understanding of practical conveyancing requirements. Video tutorials cover conveyancing topics such as: checking the legal title to a property; interpreting search results and mortgage offers; client care skills and how to manage client expectations.
Students utilise our state-of-the art Academy online learning platform – Academy OLP – which provides access to reading resources including the detailed CLC course manuals and PDF files that are published online for each module.
Student apprentices are required to spend a day a week – 20% of their working week - studying or completing their Conveyancing competencies as a part of the Apprenticeship funding programme. This requirement need not be arduous, on either the student or the legal practice employer, and further information on how this learning requirement can be achieved is detailed later in this prospectus.
Students who have completed higher education achievements, such as Law degrees or completion of the Legal Practice Course (LPC), may be exempt from certain course modules, as they may already have met some of the course criteria.
