Pupils

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 these requirements.

Register your pupillage

It is very important that you register your pupillage as soon as possible with the Bar Standards Board, using the registration form below. The completed form should be sent to the BSB, and a copy sent to the Inn.

If you do not yet have details of your pupil supervisor, you can still send the form to the Inn, so that we are aware of where and when you are doing your pupillage, but you should not send it to the BSB until the form is signed by your supervisor, as they will not register your pupillage until this is done.

Further Education Programme

The programme must be completed in your first six.

The programme is composed of two separate elements: the Advocacy Course and a Practice Management Course.

For those completing their pupillage on the South-Eastern circuit, the courses will be provided by your Inn. Those in pupillage elsewhere will complete the courses provided by the individual circuits themselves; you should contact your circuit administrator for the dates of the next courses.

The Inner Temple Pupils’ Advocacy Training Programme for 2017-2018 in London and the South East will commence in October 2017. Pupils are divided between Course A beginning in October 2017 and Course B beginning in January 2018. Pupils from both Course A and B will attend the same Practice Management Course in January 2018.

There is also a requirement to complete a minimum of 20 hours training in Forensic Accounting, either in your pupillage year, or by the end of your first three years in practice. This is an online course run by BPP.
