Paralegal Apprentice

When did you first develop an interest in law?

The fascination of mine came from my enthusiasm of law at A-Level, which influenced me to research further into the legal pathway and careers and from that I knew that it was the right sector for me.

What attracted you to Springpod, how was your experience of using it and how did it affect your career direction?

The Springpod law work experience really attracted me as I was able to complete this alongside my college studies.

The structure of the work experience was really helpful as after completing a topic, we were able to reinforce the information by completing tasks which would be reviewed. The experience was like no other I had participated in as with this one, it was really flexible which gave me enough time to go through everything in my own time whilst also studying for my a-levels. I highly recommend Springpod for all students!

What advice would you give someone considering an apprenticeship?

One advice I would give is that all work experience is good work experience! Be open to all new opportunities and never doubt what you're capable of! You are at the stage where you're constantly learning and you should take every opertunity to learn and develop your core skills further.

From this it will give you a further insight to your preferred career pathway and give you the ability to speak to professionals whom have already gone through that journey and now are in their role.
