PQPRs - providers

The PQPR process

Trainees have always been required to complete quarterly reviews with their supervising solicitors during the course of their traineeships. The review process for trainees starting on or after 1 September 2011 is referred to by the Society as a PEAT 2 quarterly performance review (PQPR).

Prior to conducting a PQPR, both trainees and supervising solicitors should read Guidance for undertaking a PEAT 2 Quarterly Performance Review.

Some important information from this guidance is noted below:

  • Your trainee's supervising solicitor information must be up-to-date. Your trainee can find this in the PEAT 2 section of their Members' login area under the Trainee Data sub-section. This should be the solicitor who will be undertaking their review.
  • If your trainee has not received their login username and password, they should contact loginenquiries@lawscot.org.uk. All trainee solicitors should have received these already.
  • The Society has developed a template PQPR form, for use by trainees and their supervising solicitors. If the template is used, once completed, this should be uploaded by your trainee to the members' login area and you will then be able to view and approve or reject this, all as more fully explained in the PQPR guidance.
  • There is a file size limit of 200kb for all complteted PQPRs.  A file size greater than this will not successfully upload to the members' login area.  File size will be effected by the number of words used in a PQPR but this will also be dependent on formatting. Therefore, the Society advises that trainees note the file size of completed PQPR before attempting to upload them.

If you have any questions about PEAT or TCPD, please contact PEAT@lawscot.org.uk.
