CILEX Professional Qualification (CPQ)
We are an approved provider for the new CILEX Professional Qualification (CPQ). This is an exciting time for The Law Academy and CILEX as the new qualification is now underway.
For our current students, there will be a transitional period whereby they can complete their current qualifications (Level 3 and 6) or can transition to the CPQ at various stages.
We will continue to support all our students and have welcomed our new trainees embarking on their journey to be a CILEX Paralegal through the CPQ from September 2021.
The CPQ is a competency based qualification framework. It has 3 stages of progression. Each stage leads to a recognised title of CILEX Paralegal, Advanced CILEX Paralegal and CILEX Lawyer.
The Foundation stage comprises of 5 compulsory modules of study, together with the Ethics and professional responsibility e-learning course and demonstration of your professional experience.
Our Foundation stage trainees are studying Legal Systems and Contract Law from September 2021.
After their January exams, they will move on to the Professional Skills modules together with the Tort module.
The final module of Introduction to property and private client will run September 22 – January 23 to complete the foundation stage studies. Together with completion of the Ethics 1 module and the Professional Experience evidence, these trainees will have qualified as CILEX Paralegals.
All our online courses are evenings to enable you to study around your work commitments.
Once this stage is completed, trainees can opt to continue to work as a CILEX Paralegal and be very proud of their achievements or continue to the Advanced stage of the CPQ. This stage leads to becoming an Advanced CILEX Paralegal. Again, trainees may decide this is the position they wish to remain at however, they may wish to progress to the final stage – the Professional stage to qualify as a CILEX Lawyer.
Once the Professional Stage is released by CILEX, we will be adding this to our suite of courses we will offer.
The Law Academy are committed to supporting you and encouraging you through your qualification at each step of your career.
