Why do we provide CPD?

Our mission as an organisation is to ensure that everyone has equal access to legal proceedings. For this reason, we are passionate about sharing our knowledge and practice with legal practitioners, to help ensure every court user is able to participate effectively in cases which could have a significant impact upon their lives.

The training we provide is not intended to be a replacement for intermediary support at court. Instead, we hope the sessions provide an improved understanding of communication needs and their possible impacts at court. We explore how legal professionals can work successfully with intermediaries to support clients with communication differences and difficulties, and how to improve client participation when an intermediary is not allocated throughout a trial.

What do we offer?

Training led by experts:

Our CPD sessions are delivered by experienced intermediaries, who bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table. With first-hand experience of supporting clients with communication needs in legal proceedings, our trainers offer practical insights, real-world examples and best practices that resonate with legal professionals.

Certified Accreditation:

Upon completion of our CPD sessions, attendees receive certified accreditation providing tangible evidence of their commitment to professional development and excellence in legal practice. This accreditation can be used to fulfil your own CPD requirements and demonstrate compliance with professional standards and regulations.

Interactive learning experiences:

Our CPD sessions are interactive and engaging, fostering active participation and discussion among attendees. Incorporating interactive exercises and polls allows participants to gain hands-on experience and deepen their understanding of effective communication strategies in legal contexts.

Delivered in a way that suits you:

Our CPD sessions are offered in both online and in-person formats. This flexibility allows participants to choose the delivery method that best suits their needs and availability.
