Professional Skills Course

The Professional Skills Course(PSC) is a compulsory course designed to help those training to become a solicitor develop the skill-set required of an effective lawyer. As a long standing SRA accredited provider, Kaplan Altior delivers a PSC course which ensures that trainee solicitors become competent to practice and can meet the demanding needs of their clients. The course consists of 4 core modules together with 24 hours of electives (where applicable).

In addition, the SRA's requirement to undertake a contentious seat during the training contract can be satisfied by adding Kaplan Altior's Trainee Litigation Programme to the PSC course.
