Education Co-ordinator

Anybody who wishes to become a barrister in England and Wales must join one of the four Inns of Court. Established around the middle of the fourteenth century and located in what is now central London, the role of the Inns has changed over time. However, while most of legal education has been devolved to higher education institutions, the Inns continue to play an essential part in education and training for the Bar.

About the Education and Training Department

The Inner Temple fulfils its role in training and supporting both student and qualified barristers through Education and Training activities, which are arranged by a dedicated Education and Training Department. The Department is responsible for:

  • supporting students in schools and colleges, and prospective Bar students with a specific focus on equality, diversity and inclusion;
  • scholarships for the law conversion course, vocational training, disability grants, pupillage and internships;
  • the training of its student members (alongside the approved education and training organisations that provide the vocational qualification component);
  • advocacy training for pupils and new practitioners;
  • continuing professional development for established practitioners;
  • support schemes including mentoring, marshalling and mock interview schemes.

While the department leads on the education and training of student and qualified barristers, other departments, especially the Library and the Inner Temple’s Treasury Office also contribute to the Inn’s educational offer.

The department is currently recruiting for an Education Co-ordinator.
