We now offer the new CILEX CPQ Foundation level qualifications. We will also be continuing with the current qualifications (Level 3, Level 6 and Graduate Fast track Diploma) for continuing students.

We have developed an exciting and forward thinking online teaching structure to enable current and new students to study with us feeling fully supported through weekly sessions with your tutors. 

Our courses are online to ensure The Law Academy is available nationwide. You will be very supported through our blended online classes. Each week, your tutor will record an introduction to this weeks subject providing the important aspects of each topic. This is be watched before the live lesson. The live online lesson is weekly when your tutor and your group all join together. These interactive sessions are when the tutor will expand on the topic, look at exam technique and facilitate discussion within the group. 

All our live sessions are evenings (typically 6.30pm) to ensure it does not interfere with your working day. Each subject has one live lesson per week. The pre-recorded videos can be revisited as often as you wish – great for revision!

CILEX exams are all online. These are accessed and invigilated remotely which means you can take the exams from your home, office or any other quiet place with a good internet connection. 

Some level 3 and 6 units may be studied via our e-learning. This involves more self study and people may opt for this method if they cannot commit to the weekly sessions. E-learning is not available for the CPQ.

As you will have read above, you will be signing up to an online course.  You therefore will need a stable internet connection, computer or tablet with a working webcam and microphone.

You will also need these for your online exams.

Our Welcome information will detail the fees for your chosen course. 

Fees are a combination of tuition fees payable to The Law Academy and also fees  payable to CILEx directly.

All fees must be paid in accordance with the agreement in place for you. A personal payment schedule will be discussed with you before your first payment will be due.

Yes, we are happy to discuss individual instalment plans. We work hard to ensure we offer you a fair and manageable payment plan and our instalment plans are interest free!

As a private training company we receive no individual government funding. Our students generally therefore cannot access the government loans available for our courses.

You can contact CILEx to discuss any funding options which may be available.

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.
