Training Academy to help lawyers of the future

The Academy, is a new training facility launched by Simply Conveyancing providing academic and theoretical training for aspiring lawyers.

The six month comprehensive training programme and accelerated career pathway has been carefully designed to support Simply colleagues in their journey to become qualified Conveyancers. Through a mix of class-room and on the job training, Academy Lawyers will be trained to run a caseload of their own with a highly professional and personal service, to support their clients through the conveyancing process.

Those enlisted in the academy will have access to a Technical Trainer and Legal Managers who will provide mentorship, help and guidance, helping conveyancers of the future.

Academy Lawyers will also complete academic training with this course by enrolling onto a CLC Conveyancing course of their choice to enhance their specialist skills and knowledge in order to obtain a formal qualification.

Simply Conveyancing Technical Trainer, Lisa King said:

“Simply thrives to be an exceptional conveyancer for our Estate Agent partners and clients as well as an exceptional employer for our colleagues. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and that is why we want to invest heavily in their success. The Simply Academy is a unique programme to develop Lawyers of the future.

“This is just the beginning for our Academy Lawyers. At Simply, we are committed to providing structured training and development to our colleagues to support them to achieve their career goals.”

Academy Lawyers have been recruited from the Simply Conveyancing’s Legal Support teams and existing Legal Assistants. However the organisation is planning additional Academy training opportunities over the coming year to further enhance the careers of its colleagues within the conveyancing sector.

Academy Lawyer Mita Begum said:

“At first I was quite nervous to take the jump from Legal Assistant to Property Lawyer but I knew I wanted to progress my career and The Simply Academy is an incredible opportunity to do this. Getting on the ground training as well as managing my own caseload is going to be a fantastic challenge and I cannot wait to get started.”
