As a private training company we receive no individual government funding. We will however discuss any options that may be available to you when you attend for your information appointment.

You can also visit the CILEx website for more information on funding HERE

Are your courses apprenticeships?

Most people studying the CILEx courses with us are not an apprentice in their company. Over the last 3 years, some students have secured a role within local firms as Legal Services Apprentices. This involved them attending The Law Academy to complete the relevant CILEx units that formed part of the Apprenticeship. The rest of the programme is delivered and coordinated by Damar Training in the apprentice's workplace.

However, since May 2017, some employers have to consider the Apprenticeship Levy which enables them to utilise Government funding for apprenticeships. This may include the Paralegal apprenticeship leading on to the Chartered Legal Executive Apprenticeship. Each of these include CILEx qualifications that we deliver.  All other elements of the Apprenticeship are  delivered and coordinated by Damar Training.  

Therefore, if your employer is looking to utilise either of these Apprenticeships, get in touch. 


Will The Law Academy Ltd find me employment?

We do not arrange placements for any students however we do have a good relationship with lots of local employers. Many of them advertise vacancies through us and several students have found employment within the first year of studying with us either through our vacancies website or through contact with other members of their class groups.

Can I apply for an NUS Extra card?

Yes, once your course begins or if you are a current student, you can apply following this link. Paper forms have to be approved by Helen, or if applied for online, cards will be delivered to the office and we will contact you once we have approved this as having been applied for by our students. Happy saving...!
