Announcing the UK’s first in-house legal apprenticeship

ITV offers first in-house apprenticeship through employer-led Trailblazer scheme

We’re delighted to announce that in partnership with CILEx Law School and City Law School, part of City University, London, we’re the first company to offer a solicitor apprenticeship under the new Trailblazers Apprenticeship in Law scheme.

Starting in September 2016, our in-house legal team will welcome an apprentice, who will gain first hand experience in a salaried role, whilst working toward their qualification as a solicitor, qualifying by August 2022.

We are delighted to be the first in-house legal department to embrace the new Solicitor Apprenticeship scheme. We see the new apprenticeship route as a great opportunity to create solicitors who know ITV’s business inside out at the point of qualification. This can only enhance our quest to make our lawyers true business partners.
Andrew Garard, Group Legal Director, ITV

The Trailblazer solicitor apprenticeship offers an opportunity for a new generation of young people to qualify as solicitors from the security of salaried employment. We look forward to working in close partnership with ITV to lead the way.
