This exciting 2 year, full time, law programme will provide you with a strong understanding of the law and the legal sector. The BTEC qualification will be completed during your first year of study together with the first year of the new Advanced Technical level qualification that is accredited by The Charted Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). Assessment is through a mixture of coursework and exams. Each qualification is equivalent to 1 A Level and attracts UCAS points. This programme of study is ideal if you wish to specialise or progress into a legal career through employment, Higher or Degree Apprenticeships, Higher Education or further vocational study. When you achieve the qualifications, you will then also be able to apply for the Foundation degree in Law at University Centre South Devon.
You will learn through a variety of practical and theoretical sessions with your knowledge being contextualised by: the opportunity to engage in local and national visits to visit courts and legal institutions; applying the law to legal scenarios and by completing a work placement within a legal environment. A range of external speakers will also help you understand the law in practice and further develop your knowledge and understanding
Studying A Level Law at South Devon College helped me decide what I wanted to do as a career, and therefore what I wanted to study at university. We benefited hugely from termly trips, and we even shadowed a judge, which gave me a huge insight into what my future career could entail. My teacher, Kay Harding, is excellent, and went above and beyond in helping me revise, improve exam technique and keep me up to date on current legal affairs. She was also great at giving me advice even outside of College time.Callum Priestley
