CLC supports Probate Apprenticeships

The Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) has been supporting a consortium of probate practices and experts in its successful application to develop an apprenticeship in Probate as part of the Government’s Trailblazer 3 scheme.

The consortium, whose members include Irwin Mitchell LLP, The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and Kings Court Trust Ltd, follows the success of the consortium that developed a conveyancing apprenticeship as part of Trailblazer 2, also supported by the CLC. The CLC and all consortium members are committed to developing new routes to qualification as specialist lawyers to provide a robust pipeline of talent to the profession and to widen access, making the legal profession more diverse and inclusive.

Skills Minister Nick Boles said:

“I congratulate The Probate Practitioners Trailblazer for the key role it is playing in developing new top-quality apprenticeships. Through the trailblazers initiative organisations like the Council for Licensed Conveyancers, in collaboration with their industry partners, will give people the skills they need to thrive and our businesses need to compete.”

Sheila Kumar, Chief Executive of the CLC said:

“The CLC is delighted to be supporting another apprenticeship Trailblazer. It is an important part of our commitment to widening access to the legal profession and ensuring there is a good supply of well qualified individuals to meet client demand.”
