Our UK apprenticeship

Our two year paralegal apprenticeship is aimed at those that have completed A Levels or equivalent studies. We offer the Level 4 Certificate of Higher Education in Legal Services, which is equivalent to the first year of a law undergraduate degree. The paralegal apprenticeship offers an introduction to the fundamentals of legal practice and provides a combination of learning and working within one of our legal teams, to build your knowledge and the skills required to work as a Litigation Assistant at Kennedys. In addition to a dedicated supervisor at Kennedys, you will have a personal tutor and student manager at BPP, to ensure that you have all the support you need at work and with your studies. We offer a competitive salary (paying at least the UK Living wage both in and outside of London), giving you the opportunity to earn while you learn.

Once the two year paralegal apprenticeship has been completed, apprentices who would like to continue their learning may have the opportunity to join the Level 7 solicitor apprenticeship. This takes five years to complete and involves the completion of a (Hons) degree in legal practice and will lead to qualifying as a solicitor.
BPP University Law School is our learning provider for our apprenticeships and they have various UK locations, making it easily accessible for apprentices in all of our UK offices. Find out more information about BPP.

We currently offer paralegal apprenticeships in our Birmingham, Cambridge, Chelmsford, London, Manchester and Sheffield offices.

Applications for our 2018 paralegal apprenticeship have now closed. Applications for our 2019 paralegal apprenticeship will open on the 1 September 2018 via www.getmyfirstjob.co.uk.
