Lawscot Trainee CPD Programme
Lawscot Trainee CPD is made up of four modules covering the following PEAT 2 Outcomes:
  • Professionalism
  • Professional communication
  • Professional ethics and standards
  • Business, commercial, financial and practice awareness

The course follows a blended learning approach with a combination of online independent learning and classroom training delivered by experts. Please note the classroom training will be delivered online for the remainder of this practising year.

There are several available training day dates per module, so please select your preference at time of registering (this can always be amended later on, if needs be).

As trainee on this programme, you will have the opportunity to network with your peers from across the country, enabling you to share your experiences and learn from others. You will also have complimentary access* (up to a total of 20 hours) to our extensive webinar library, allowing you to make up the remaining 20 hours of unauthorised TCPD to combine with the 40 hours of authorised TCPD that the programme provides.

* For trainees not on our Lawscot TCPD programme, you can gain access to 20 hours of unauthorised TCPD for £199 + VAT. If you would like to take up this offer please contact CPD@lawscot.org.uk. Search our library of online material below.
