Apprenticeships at Stephens Scown
Not everyone wants to go to university, or has the means to – and apprentices provide many people with a cheaper and arguably faster route into their chosen career. Apprenticeships with Stephens Scown take you straight to the real-world application of legal skills and expertise. We offer a range of options for kick-starting your legal career path, including Solicitors, Paralegals and business support services roles such as Marketing and Finance.
What is an apprenticeship, and is it for me?
An apprenticeship combines work with education and training, and offers the same career paths as university study, but without the expensive costs. It allows you to combine work and study, mixing on-the-job training with structured learning through an external training provider. All the while, you earn a competitive salary and enjoy all our standard benefits, including 25 days holiday (plus your birthday off!), a pension, life assurance, and the opportunity to become part of our ‘Scownership’ scheme.
Learn and earn, and acquire invaluable experience
Our apprentices learn both academically and vocationally, so you benefit from a combination of knowledge, insight and context that supports your progress. For example, as a Stephens Scown apprentice, you get to learn:
It’s a great way to see what you learn applied to everyday legal work, use on-the-job experience to support your studies – and ultimately to gain the qualifications that support your ambitions.
What kinds of apprenticeship do we offer?
It doesn’t matter if you’re completely new to the legal profession, or looking to acquire additional skills and progress in your current role with further qualifications – there are many options to choose from, and we’re continuously developing our apprenticeship portfolio.
We currently have apprentices training to become solicitors, chartered executives and HR administrators. We have a number of both Legal and Business Support apprentices working towards a variety of professional qualifications
