Sharpe Pritchard offers a fully-funded graduate apprenticeship scheme for its SQE solicitors. The apprenticeship lasts 32 months. You’ll start with the firm in September 2024, and will take the SQE1 preparation course with BPP Law School. Once you pass the SQE1 exam, you’ll start your two years of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) at the firm in May 2025.
Your QWE will begin with a bespoke training induction. The induction lasts four weeks, during which you’ll have the chance to get to know your fellow trainees and the firm itself. You’ll also learn more about how Sharpe Pritchard operates, and about the firm’s core legal practice areas, particularly the specialist areas that the LPC, SQE or GDL don’t cover. This ensures that you feel confident and prepared for your first seat.
Trainees experience four seats at the firm, and can choose from any of the firm’s core areas. These include: dispute resolution, employment and construction. You’ll have the opportunity to express your preferences, which will be given serious consideration. There’s even the option to go on secondment as part of one of your seats, allowing you to gain valuable exposure to the firm’s clients.
As part of their commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, Sharpe Pritchard provides work experiences for year 12 students. This is done in collaboration with PRIME, the Sutton Trust and Reach Out 2 Kids, three organisations that work with young people from lower social economic and ethnic minority backgrounds.
Sharpe Pritchard offers a week-long work experience programme, providing practical work experience and workshops to prepare students for a career in law. The firm covers your travel expenses to and from their office, as well as lunch and refreshments throughout the day. In order to apply, you must attend a state school, have good GCSE results, and fulfil select criteria that show you come from a disadvantaged background.
