Regulation 11: Requirements for authorisation as a training provider


To become an authorised training provider, an organisation must make an application in the prescribed form.


An application submitted under regulation 11.1 should declare that the organisation is able to provide training:


and experience in at least three distinct areas of English and Welsh law and practice;


to enable a trainee to develop the skills needed to meet the Practice Skills Standards and comply with the Principles;


which is appropriately supervised; and


which meets the requirements of regulation 12.


We may refuse to authorise any organisation or may grant authorisation with or without conditions and for such period as we consider appropriate.
