What is a period of recognised training?

A period of recognised training is structured, work based learning which forms part of the vocational stage in the route to qualifying as a solicitor.

It is closely supervised and is usually for a period of two years if undertaken on a full time basis.

A trainee is required to gain experience in at least three distinct areas of English and Welsh law and practice and meet the Practice Skills Standards. A training record must be kept throughout the training.
