The University of Law (ULaw) has secured an exclusive training partnership with UK law firm, TLT. The partnership will see ULaw become the exclusive training provider of the Legal Practice Course (LPC), Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and the Professional Skills Course (PSC) for TLT from September 2019.

Under the new arrangement, the training and development is available across all the ULaw campuses including in London, Manchester and Bristol.

TLT said it was impressed with ULaw’s positioning on the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) and also that ULaw’s plans and direction were a good fit for its training needs.

TLT is a leading UK law firm with a focus on seven core sectors: clean energy; digital; financial services; leisure, food and drink; public sector; real estate; and retail and consumer goods. The firm has offices in all three UK legal jurisdictions of England & Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and employs around 1,000 people.

In 2018, the firm announced a £500k investment fund to support its Future Law initiative, which focuses on developing new solutions to client challenges in areas like legaltech and near-legal consulting. TLT recently announced a new partnership with document automation provider Clarilis, meaning the firm now offers a complete end-to-end document and contract automation solution for clients.

Peter Crisp, Pro Vice Chancellor External at The University of Law, said: “The practice of law and the role of lawyers is changing rapidly, and the training of future lawyers needs to reflect this new dynamic, not least as we prepare for the introduction of the SQE. The University of Law’s partnership with TLT will see us providing the GDL, LPC and PSC for all of the firm’s future legal talent. Our programmes are innovative and forward-looking not just in cutting-edge content and delivery but also in providing the skills and behaviours a trainee needs to be office-ready.”

Ed Fiddick, training principal at TLT, added: “We are very pleased to be working with The University of Law. We share the same goals when it comes to inspiring future lawyers and preparing them for successful careers.

"We were impressed by ULaw’s forward thinking approach and in particular the coverage of legaltech on its programmes. Our trainees will be introduced to the application of legaltech on the LPC. ULaw also has an innovative Legal Tech module as part of its PSC offering: ideal preparation for a role supporting TLT's objective to remain at the forefront of innovation in the legal sector.

"ULaw provides excellent teaching that will prepare students for life as a TLT trainee and ultimately, as a qualified solicitor.”

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In Jan 2021, FE News had over 173,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector, putting us in the top 2,000 websites in the UK.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
