Level III Legal Apprentice, Forbes Solicitors

I first started Forbes straight after finishing my A – Level exams, and whilst knowing I didn’t want to go to University,  I saw Forbes as a well-known reputable firm with room for progression.  I attended a careers event and saw the apprenticeships advertised.

I started my apprenticeship journey as an office assistant in the Family Department at the Blackburn office.  At the same time as working, I also undertook my level II apprenticeship in Business Administration.  At the end of this apprenticeship level I moved to the Chorley office to be an Admin Assistant in the Housing and Regeneration (litigation) Department as this gave me more responsibility and was the next step up.

In September 2018 I became a Trainee Paralegal.  With this role I am also undertaking the CILEX level III paralegal apprenticeship which is a great opportunity and I am really enjoying it.  This apprenticeship enables me to learn new concepts which I find interesting as I did not do any law subjects at GCSE or A – Level, so it really gives me the basic knowledge I can build on whilst working in the law environment. It involves watching online webinars/ live workshops once a week alongside gathering coursework for mid-point assessments working with my assessor.  I have just recently sat my first exam in relation to introduction to law and practice and I will shortly be staring my next
module on Contract Law.

As I did not know what I wanted to do when I left sixth form, I am so happy I chose to come to Forbes.  It has opened up so many amazing opportunities that I had never thought about before and the apprenticeships Forbes offer are excellent.
