The training principal and you must sign the training contract within three months of the date that you start work in the capacity of a trainee. Your training establishment must register the training contract with us within one month of it being signed.
You must ensure that you have received confirmation from us that it has been registered.
The training contract cannot be amended without our prior approval.
Failure to register the training contract could mean that not all of the time will count, and your admission to the roll could be delayed.
In accordance with regulation 6.1(g) of the SRA Training Regulations Part 2 - Training Provider Regulations, we will not register a training contract if you are paid a salary less than our prescribed minimum, which we review each year and may change. We will allow the cash value of benefits against the minimum salary.
