As part of the Professional Skills Course, trainee solicitors (unless exempt) must complete 24 hours of electives, with at least 12 hours taken as face-to-face tuition. Our PSC package includes 2 elective options that satisfy this requirement. Each Altior elective carries an equal amount of face-to-face tuition and distance learning, meaning you gain a deeper understanding of the elective subject.
Single elective courses can also be taken as CPC/CPD by solicitors who either want to brush up on their skills or are moving into a new area of practice.
Trainee Solicitors can also take any of our continued competence and personal effectiveness courses to satisfy their elective requirements. These courses include a range of core business skills such as Business Writing and Business Development and Networking and interpersonal skills such as Negotiation Skills and Time Management.
