BBC Legal Apprentice Programme

What is the BBC Legal Apprentice Programme? The BBC is the world’s leading public service broadcaster. Its mission is to enrich people’s lives with programmes that inform, educate and entertain.  It provides television, radio and digital services in the UK, and through its commercial subsidiaries brings the best of the BBC’s content to the rest of the world. In 2014, we launched our legal apprentice programme which is designed to provide an alternative to the university route, thus enabling high achieving school leavers to work towards qualifying as lawyers. Training on the apprentice programme is run by CILEX (Chartered Institute of Legal Executives) ‘s Law School via distance learning and workplace assessment.   Our apprentices will be with us for two years during which they will take Level 3 legal qualifications that form part of the route to become a lawyer. Where are these opportunities available? We have 3 places available in our London offices, 1 in Salford and 1 in Glasgow. Why should I consider the BBC legal apprentice programme as an alternative to university? University tuition fees now mean that students typically leave university with a large debt.  It can be difficult for them to find relevant work experience and to get on the career ladder. The BBC Legal Apprenticeship offers an alternative route into law which avoids the expense and uncertainty of the university route.   On our programme, school leavers can earn a salary and study toward recognised legal qualifications whilst gaining quality work experience under the supervision of our world class lawyers.  For those already committed to a career in law, this route can get you working and earning in your chosen field from day one. When does the apprenticeship begin and how long does the programme last? Apprentices will join the BBC in September 2016 on a two year fixed term contract and will be supported through their studies with half a day per week study leave. What would I be studying and what skills will I gain? The apprenticeship covers an Introduction to Law and Practice (the English Legal System); Contract Law; Civil Litigation; Client Care Skills and Legal Research Skills. There will be assessments on those subjects.  You will also be acquiring the skills of a paralegal such as creating documents for court; drafting; doing research, and communicating with clients.  The apprenticeship is called a Trailblazer Apprenticeship for Paralegals. What work will I be doing? During the apprenticeship you will be heavily involved in the legal work carried out by the BBC – assisting lawyers with their cases, transactions and projects, having your own responsibilities within the team, carrying out legal research and building relationships with our internal clients.
