For example, there will be a £300 gratia payment for participants with a further £200 given to the top 10% achievers. Candidates who are attending the pilots in London will also be able to claim back travel expenses provided they meet the right criteria.**
There are also benefits for top performers in the SQE pilots from firms that are willing to give high achievers in the SQE2 training contract assessment day place, open day places, work experience placements or career development coaching.
Participants of the SQE2 pilot will also be given detailed transcripts with their results set against others who participated. All of which can be shown to prospective employers.
Further details of the assessment will be released to successful applicants.
Applications are open until the 13 September 2019. If you think you meet the criteria, help shape the future of the legal profession in England and Wales by applying now and grabbing your spot in the SQE2 pilot.
