Elective Options

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 Kaplan 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. You can also opt to sit the Higher Rights of Audience course  which will enable you to work in the higher courts upon completion of the PSC and training contract.
