  • Beware, oh wannabe apprentices. Working at a law firm that has an intake of apprentices who know other apprentices elsewhere, this 'apprenticeship' craze is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Do your research properly on this: you're to be treated like dogsbodies with false hopes and false promises, and potentially have to fork out substantial amounts of money from your own pittance salaries for the best part of your ILEX.

  • What an odd comment from 'Beware.' Employers are usually fully funded for an apprenticeship but cannot require contributions from the apprentice.
    If an employee completes an apprenticeship and continues with CILEx training then some employers will require the employee to pay for it. This is no different from what has been happening for years: some employers sponsor their staff, some don't. What is clear is that CILEx is considerably cheaper than simply taking a punt on the LPC.
    Being treated as dogsbody is about the way some employers treat their staff. It is not an occupational hazard particular to apprenticeships. Indeed, the feedback we've had from apprenticeships has generally been very good indeed.
