Law Career Booster

Developing skills for employment

We launched our Career Booster programme three years ago as an exclusive and valuable opportunity available to everyone studying with us throughout their course. The programme is designed to equip you with the necessary skills and graduate attributes to be job-ready when seeking employment within the legal profession or beyond.

What is Career Booster?

The Career Booster Programme offers you access to over 60 workshops, masterclasses, webinars, presentations, lectures or panel sessions. Our recent Career Booster programmes included sessions on;

  • Step Into Law: Finding the firm for you!
  • LinkedIn: Masterclass (Webinar)
  • Family Arbitration
  • Commercial Mediation and Arbitration
  • West Yorkshire Police Training Academy: Mock Police Investigation: Could you solve a case of child sexual exploitation?
  • Proactive is an essential requirement for lawyers (Law Firm Consultant Darlington Solicitors) 

In addition, the programme will also include activities to promote teamwork, confidence, communication and many other skills sought by employers.

How can Career Booster help you?

Developing a portfolio of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Certificates will demonstrate to employers that you are not only ambitious but also take responsibility for your professional development.

This is a unique programme that equips you to be job-ready when seeking employment with leading innovative organisations. Alongside your qualification, demonstrating that you have developed the soft skills employers are looking for can mean that your CV stands from the 70-plus applications currently received by leading organisations for each of their graduate-level vacancies.

In a competitive job market, Career Booster provides the ‘edge’ that you need.

We’re giving our students the chance to learn these in-demand practical skills with the programme as well as the more soft interpersonal attributes such as teamworking, problem-solving and negotiating
