CILEx Legal Studies Level 2 Certificate / Diploma

At Professional Vocational Training we specialise in working with companies of all sizes to enhance the skill levels of their existing staff to enable them to perform their duties more effectively and efficiently. This can either be by developing existing skills or by increasing the breadth of knowledge and skills that the employees have.

The programmes we offer are tailored to meet the requirements of a busy working environment. There is no disruption caused by day release and there is no requirement for the learners to attend an external centre at any time, as we come to you.

The Legal Studies qualifications are Vocationally Related Qualifications (VRQs). They have been developed by the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX) and City & Guilds to meet customers’ needs for more modern, up-to-date and flexible qualifications. These qualifications are accredited as part of the Qualifications Credit Framework (QCF). The emphasis is on ‘learning by doing’ and for this reason candidates are required to complete a number of assignments. These show candidates’ attainment of practical skills, which imply their understanding of the knowledge required.

The new qualification is QCF-friendly and is made up of units which can be combined in flexible ways to obtain each of the three qualifications.
