Assessing competence

In December, we launched a consultation on the introduction of a common professional assessment for all intending solicitors. Under the proposed system, everyone who wants to qualify as a solicitor would undergo the same professional assessment, called the Solicitors Qualifying Examination, based on the competences required to do the job. We want to ensure consistent high standards of entry into the profession, providing confidence for the public and employers. In this webinar recorded on 25 February 2016, we give you the opportunity to hear more about our 'Assessing competence' proposals, why they are needed and how they would work.
