- BARBRI Altior launches Advocacy & Communications Skills online for the first time
- Now trainees will be able to complete the PSC training digitally
- Launch supported by the Solicitors Regulation Authority
- BARBRI Altior is enhancing its remote training library
Cardiff-based legal training provider, BARBRI Altior has announced the launch of its virtual edition of the Professional Skills Course (PSC) core module, Advocacy & Communication, via its Live Online platform for the very first time this week.
Following on from a successful pilot with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) last month, the inaugural Live Online Advocacy & Communication course is set to launch this April. Previously only available via face-to-face delivery, this virtual solution now means that trainees will be able to take the full PSC training online.
Speaking of the launch, Jody Tranter, head of BARBRI Altior said: “We’re thrilled to be able to announce the launch of our virtual Advocacy & Communication course this week. We’ve been working closely with the SRA over the last few weeks to make this a reality, and we welcome the fact that it has been receptive to us trialling this, supporting our ability to provide training for trainees to complete their training contracts in their own desired time. It’s something that we’ve seen a demand for previously, and I believe that with a greater number of firms and individuals looking to focus on development remotely, this virtual offering has become a necessity.”
With home working figures on the rise due to government guidelines, COVID-19 has seen a growing number of legal professionals searching for online training solutions during this period. BARBRI Altior’s announcement will help to ensure that trainees can continue their professional development effectively with accredited courses.
Tranter continued: “Since its launch in 2018, we’ve been working to expand our Live Online offering. However, in light of the coronavirus outbreak, our team and expert trainers have been working tirelessly to quickly adapt more of our legal and professional training courses for virtual classroom delivery and we couldn’t be more pleased about our latest addition.
“We recognise how important training and development time is to firms under any circumstances. However, given the current situation, with many professionals working from home for the first time or perhaps going through the stressful furlough process, training and development time is providing that added structure to the working day, supporting mental wellbeing and helping them to prepare for re-integration into office-based working routines in a post-COVID-19 world.”
