We've been delivering the Professional Skills Course (PSC) to trainee solicitors for over a decade. Whilst our courses are tried and tested, they have evolved over the years to reflect the changes in legal practice and regulation.

Our Professional Skills Course is delivered to trainee solicitors at City firms, as well as to those from different, smaller firms who enter into a consortium arrangement to share the cost of training.

Our trainee solicitor training courses are designed to challenge young lawyers and to bring out their full potential. Experience has shown us that this approach builds both the confidence and skills needed for the new generation of lawyers.

We use are range of training techniques to deliver our courses, from video footage to interactive exercises that incorporate your firm's documents. In the words of one trainee solicitor we know how to make "a dreaded course enjoyable!"

What's more, the courses are always practical, engaging and helpful, so that your trainees can use their new skills as soon as they return to work.

Delivering the PSC by live remote learning

We have been delivering our PSC courses remotely since the start of the lockdown and the feedback from clients and delegates has been fantastic.

We have taken a lot of care to adapt the courses for online delivery and ensure that we provide IT support to make the experience as smooth as possible.

Here’s a selection of what the trainees have said:

‘I thought the online delivery worked really well. The use of polls and breakout rooms almost made the session more interactive than the normal face-to-face sessions. I really enjoyed the course.’

‘IT coped very well. As good as face-to-face teaching. Use of polls a good addition. Online delivery definitely a serious option to be used in future.’

‘I thought it was delivered very well. I recently undertook my elective PSC course from XXXXXXX a few weeks ago. This was also an online session. I can safely say this (your course) was 1000x more engaging and enjoyable.’

‘Honestly can't believe how well done this course was considering the nature of the content (advocacy), it ran very smoothly and Olivia (tutor) was fantastic.’

‘My scepticism about attending the whole three-day course online quickly disappeared. I thought Zoom worked really well with hardly any technical issues and I still felt that we got exposure to advocacy and the skills that are demanded. I'd like to thank the Kinch Robinson team for always making the training really fun and engaging!’
