2017 Trainee CPD Course Finalised

The Royal Faculty's TCPD Programme running from January-June 2017 has now been finalised.

Trainee CPD has been prescribed by the Law Society of Scotland as a requirement for the professional qualification of trainee solicitors. Trainees are required, over the course of their two year traineeship, to undertake a minimum of 60 hours (of which 40 hours must be from a licensed provider and include at least 4 hours on ethics).

A team from the Royal Faculty and the Scottish Law Agents Society (SLAS) has drawn up a joint programme. This will provide a complete programme providing over 60 hours of training, covering all the elements of TCPD required by the Law Society. The cost of the programme (including all materials) will be £900.

The programme will provide, through a team of experienced solicitors, an excellent training in each of the main areas of legal practice and ensure that trainees undertaking the course achieve their PEAT2 outcomes in –
 •          Professional Ethics and Standards
 •          Professionalism
 •          Professional communication
 •          Business, financial, commercial and practice awareness
 •          Substantive and relevant legal knowledge
It is intended as a comprehensive course which will ensure that trainees are as prepared as possible to meet the demands of working in the legal profession. It is aimed at supporting trainees, with the minimum of disturbance to the traineeship itself and will be delivered over a six month period, meeting all the PEAT2 requirements. It will also be supported by a helpline provision during the six months following the programme.
