Training is crucial to excelling at any career, and hands-on training is the best because it allows you to get practical experience. That is why when it comes to cracking the code of the legal world, there aren’t many careers as rewarding as a legal secretary. Yes, the entry-level position’s pay may not be noteworthy but the amount of experience one may gain may be enough for a lifetime.

However, being a legal secretary is a difficult job because it requires a high level of attention to detail and accuracy. Legal documents and correspondence must be prepared accurately, and deadlines must be met. The legal secretary must also be able to work well under pressure, multitask, and prioritise tasks.

Moreover, a legal secretary is responsible for providing administrative support to lawyers and legal teams in a law firm or legal department. They handle tasks such as drafting legal documents, scheduling appointments and organising and maintaining legal files. They may also assist with research, billing and other tasks as directed by the attorney.

This means you will need to have a diverse skill set and knowledge to excel as a legal secretary. This is exactly where our course comes in. Our course will ensure you gain all the theoretical knowledge and skills required to become a legal secretary. Enrol now and get trained in no time!

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
