Can a trainee be seconded to another firm as part of their period of recognised training?

Yes, if you cannot provide the trainee with experience in three separate areas of law or experience required by the Practice Skills Standards, you must arrange for the trainee to be seconded.

Secondments can also be arranged where you can provide the required range of experience, but you feel that they would benefit from time spent at a client company.

Secondments do not have to be approved by us.

Further information can be found in our Authorised training provider information pack.
