  • Have been working as an apprentice in the Finance Department for 12 months now at a large Firm in Birmingham - just completed my course and have now been taken on full-time as a permanent employee.
    Bit behind the times in London eh !!!!

  • What is the "endzone", and will a post-GCSE joiner really get there quicker than a graduate? If the aim is to become a solicitor, presumably a GCSE joiner would struggle to make it to that level in the 6/7 years that a peer would take to do A-levels, a degree, a GDL (if needed) and an LPC.

  • I am currently finishing my GCSEs and i am looking at doing a law degree and then a training contract. My plan is to have a complete academic route but would this apprentice route mean anything? Would it get me into a job faster?
    Also if anybody could offer me any advice in the route to take, including A-Level subjects to take, please do contact me at curtly@hotmail.co.uk.

  • This is a smart move.
    As the work becomes more computerised firms will not need educated people.
    It may even be the case that students with GCSE's are to bright to do mind-numbing computerised paralegal work.
    Who knows but I think Eversheds realise that in the future students are not going to pay £9,000 per annum for a law degree plus £10,000 on the LPC to work as a paralegal.
