SQE1 Prep Programme

SQE1 Prep Programme

Introduced in September 2021, the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) aims to ratify candidates’ capabilities who are qualifying as solicitors. This ensures one single standard is met and offers flexibility during the qualification process. The programme targets law firms and larger in-house legal teams, providing 200 hours of live teaching.

Programme Benefits

•Providing bi-weekly in-person tutorials in small groups and focused pastoral care, including dedicated professional mentors.
•Candidates will sit for mock exams.
•Teaching is scheduled for evenings and weekends to minimise disruption to the working day.
•Fexibility and seamless integration with existing Learning & Development pathways.

Application Requirements

There will no longer be a “training contract”. Instead, candidates will need to show that they have completed at least 2 years of Qualifying Work Experience. This requires supervising lawyers to confirm that the work carried out by the candidate meets the basic “competencies” set out by the SRA. It is meant to be simpler, easier and much less burdensome on employers.
