How to get Qualifying Work Experience — with BPP University Law School

Thursday 11 July, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

Join us on the afternoon of Thursday 11 July for a virtual student event with BPP University Law School that’s all about how to get Qualifying Work Experience (QWE).

QWE is a central pillar of the new SQE regime. It opens the door to a much greater degree of flexibility to how students qualify as a solicitors.

We’ll be exploring how students can acquire QWE through three key pathways:

• Building a QWE portfolio at multiple employers
• Graduate Solicitor Apprenticeships
• Getting sponsored for a two-year QWE training contract at a single employer

Date: Thursday 11 July 2024
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates

Speakers will include SQE candidates at various stages of their SQE and QWE journeys, with the session chaired by Jonny Hurst, BPP’s head of outreach and former City law firm partner.

The speakers

Kelechi Angel Nwichi-Holdsworth, graduate solicitor apprentice at The Limehouse Project
Chloe Hayes, undertaking QWE in BPP’s Social Impact Team
Henry Davine, trainee solicitor at Accutrainee

After the panel discussion there will be virtual networking with the BPP University Law School team for follow-up questions and further careers advice.

Apply to attend. You’ll be asked to submit two questions for the speakers.
