The Further Education Programme is a compulsory part of a pupil's training. You will not be entitled to obtain a final practicing certificate or enter independent practice without having completed the requirements so you must register your pupillage AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Please return a COPY of your Schedule 14 (pupillage registration form) to:
Education and Training Department
For more information on pupillage, please visit the pupillage section of the Bar Standards Board website.
The programme is composed of two separate elements: an Advocacy Course and the Practice Management Course (formally the Advice to Counsel Course) both run by the Inn. Pupils must also complete a minimum of 20 hours training in Forensic Accounting by the end of their first three years in practice (arranged through the Bar Standards Board).
The Pupils’ Advocacy Training Programme for 2015-2016 in London and the South East will comment in October 2015. Pupils are divided between Course A beginning in October 2015 and Course B beginning in January 2016. The programme must be completed in your first six. Please contact David Miller on 02077978209 for further information.
