What our clients say...
The course helped me to consolidate a broad understanding of employment law and to demonstrate the practical application of knowledge.
Phil Madelin, Head of Legal, Public and Commercial Services Union
As I initially qualified in 1996, for me this course was a good way of ensuring that my technical knowledge was up to date. The course has given me new knowledge in specific areas, which has been highly beneficial for dealing with strategic issues facing the college.
Brian Watts, Director for People and Development, City Literature Institute
I felt that the set program for the Specialist Paralegal Qualification was very useful in developing and securing my employment law knowledge and understanding. The real world scenarios, set by the well-designed tutor marked assignments, skilfully enhanced the application of the legal theory to actual practical application scenarios. The design of the course enabled the intake of complex legal information in a manner which was thoroughly assessed and considered in conveying employment law topics in an empowering and engaging way.
Mark Essex, Senior HR Officer, Deputy Head of Legal Team, VOICE
The textbook very good, it was easy to read and well presented (both the old and new version), the administration staff were very good and communicated very well.
Andy Symonds, Head of Human Resources, Tayto Group Ltd
A formal qualification underpins my practical knowledge and application of the law in the work place. I anticipate being able to provide advice and support to colleagues and managers across the business (aerospace engineering) armed with a credible qualification and more thorough understanding and appreciation of enacted law, and resultant case law. CLT provide very readable course literature and have proved to be a responsive and supportive organisation as I continue my studies.
