Hear what one of last years Academy Trainees, Libby Ansbro, had to say about her experience of the programme:
“The Academy was a huge help for me when I was unsure where I wanted my career to go. The academy helped me understand to see which area of law I would like to pursue and see which route to qualification would suit me best. After having almost 12 months experience, the academy has led me to the CILEX route, and I begin my apprenticeship in September within Fletchers. I cannot thank Fletchers enough for the amazing opportunity.”
