SRA’s new learning and development scheme ‘Continuing Competence’ in force from November 201608 Jul 2016
The deadline is fast approaching when all solicitors will need to have moved across and comply with the new Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) scheme for Continuing Competence.
‘Continuing Competence’ was introduced by the SRA in April 2015 to replace the existing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme. Under the new system there is no requirement for solicitors to attend courses, or to complete a set number of CPD hours. Anything that is done to address learning needs can now count towards a solicitor’s continuing competence.
Solicitors in England and Wales can choose to move to the new scheme at any time, but all practitioners must have made the transition before 1 November 2016.
The Law Society has published guidance for solicitors to help them adapt to the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s (SRA) new learning and development regime. The guidance has been issued in the form of frequently asked questions and has been prepared to help solicitors comply with the SRA’s new requirements.
Inspiring have developed a Leadership and Management development programme specifically for Legal Firms. The first open programme will begin in October 2016 and will be linked to Chartered Management Institute Level 5 Diploma in Management & Leadership.
