Training and development

If you believe, as Yeats did, that “education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire,” you’ll find your spark at Blanchards Bailey. We’re dedicated to developing our team and provide a wide range of opportunities for progression at every stage of your career.

Ongoing education is at the heart of our culture. You’ll experience its impact from your first day onwards through comprehensive induction programmes, a wide range of CPD opportunities, supportive performance appraisals, internal training courses and more.

As well as focusing on the progression of our own staff, we also recognise our responsibility for extending learning opportunities for the wider community, sponsoring apprentices and also welcoming work experience placements.

Your path to progression

Whether you’re following a secretarial support or fee-earning pathway, we can help you take that important ‘next step’.

From trainee Legal Secretary to Executive Assistant, or Legal Assistant to Partner, you can expect proactive professional progression, as we support and encourage our team to take the next step in their career with us.

A wide range of courses

Choose from preparation for promotion, individual coaching programmes, mentoring programmes, full staff strategy days and more.

We run comprehensive induction programmes including iHASCO training modules, as well as management development, junior fee earner development and compliance training.

Training the next generation

We sponsor up to ten apprentices every year, covering legal, accounting, business, IT and other areas.

We also recruit placement students , offer work experience opportunities to the local community and deliver career talks and visits to local schools.

Since joining Blanchards Bailey as a law graduate, they have supported me in my journey to becoming qualified through CILEX and have fostered a friendly and encouraging working atmosphere.
