Apprenticeship Funding: SQE Route

Apprenticeship Funding: SQE Route

The legal profession has long been associated with rigorous academic qualifications and high barriers to entry. However, in recent years, apprenticeships have emerged as a viable alternative route to becoming a solicitor. With the introduction of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), aspiring solicitors now have more flexibility in their journey towards a qualification. In this article, we’ll explore the exciting world of apprenticeship funding, with a focus on Datalaw’s Level 7 Solicitor Apprenticeship and Graduate Solicitor Apprenticeship programs, which provide an innovative path to SQE success.

Understanding the SQE

The SQE is a revolutionary change in the legal education landscape of the United Kingdom. Replacing the traditional Legal Practice Course (LPC) and the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), the SQE offers a more flexible and accessible route to qualification. It consists of two stages: SQE1, which tests candidates on their legal knowledge, and SQE2, which evaluates their practical skills.

Apprenticeship Funding for the SQE

One of the most attractive aspects of the new SQE route is the availability of apprenticeship funding. Apprenticeships provide a unique opportunity for aspiring solicitors to earn while they learn, reducing the financial burden typically associated with legal education. This funding allows individuals to work at a law firm while simultaneously completing their SQE assessments.

Datalaw are approved by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to take advantage of this funding on your firms behalf. The ESFA have set aside government funding in the form of the apprenticeship levy to train professionals in work to increase talent aquisition and career progression.
