London SQE Training Programme 2022 – Marine

Our programme will prepare you for the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE), the new route to qualification. The SQE training programme will take the form of a Graduate Solicitor Apprenticeship and allows you to start working and earning at Kennedys immediately after university, while gaining qualifying legal work experience in one of our teams before sitting the SQE1 and SQE2 exams to qualify as a solicitor.  You will also be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate from BPP.

The two year six-month training programme will involve working at Kennedys four days a week and having one day off a week to study at BBP. In addition to a dedicated supervisor at Kennedys, you will have a tutor and skills coach at BPP, to ensure that you have all the support you need at work and with your studies.
