Here's what our current Apprentices have to say about being an Apprentice at Addleshaw Goddard.
We are currently offering our new Paralegal Apprenticeship in 2018 but Apprenticeships are not a new concept to AG. We started our Apprenticeship journey in 2013 by recruiting our very first Legal Apprentices and a further group in 2015. In 2016 we also recruited a number of IT and Administration Apprentices. In 2017 we recruited our first intake of Solicitor Apprentices. Our Legal Apprenticeship won us the Newcomer of the Year (Large Employer) Award at the National Apprenticeship Awards in 2014 and AG were highly commended (in the Large Employer category) of the Apprenticeships 4 England Awards in 2015. We also won the 'Best school-leaver or Apprenticeship Initiative' in 2018 at the HR in Law Awards.
Here's what some of our apprentices have to say about their time at AG and their Apprenticeship.
"Although I had initially applied and been accepted to various universities, the advantages of working and studying at AG as an Apprentice far outweighed those I believe I'd gain from studying a degree at this stage in my career."
"Legal apprenticeships offer an alternative route into the legal profession whilst gaining valuable work experience."
"We gain valuable experience, skills and legal knowledge."
