Professional Skills Course - Financial & Business Skills

Professional Skills Course - Financial & Business Skills - a 3-day training course by Kaplan Altior

This 3-day long module is an essential part of the Professional Skills Course, a mandatory selection of modules required for those who wish to qualify as solicitors. The Financial and Business Skills module is designed to hone candidates' understanding of the business world and prepare them for actual trial work, drawing upon practical and relevant case studies.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The PSC should be completed within a trainee's 2-year training contract. To study the programme at the best pace for you, and to study your preferred choice of electives, it is always best to plan your PSC early on in your training contract.

The SRA now stipulates that the Client Care & Professional Standards module must not be completed until a trainee has served at least 6 months full-time or full-time equivalent in a training contract, meaning that a trainee might choose to attend day 1 of the module early in their training contract and then attend day 2 later. Kaplan Altior is happy to advise trainees on this and other requirements.

Available In-House
