As per Law Society of Scotland requirements all Trainees are required to undertake a minimum of 60 hours CPD training over the two-year period of their training contract. Of these 60 hours, 40 must be specialised TCPD taken with an authorised provider.
This is often easier said than done! Attending authorised TCPD events can be costly and time consuming especially for those in the Dundee area. Or so you thought…
Blackadders LLP present Training Academy!! Training Academy provides authorised TCPD on a variety of subjects from Commercial law to Rural law, from external agencies to charities.
Gaining TCPD could not be easier – running over one lunch time per week it provides all your PEAT 2 objectives necessary to complete your training contract.
Are you a Skype for Business user, then things just got easier! Blackadders have the facility to enable you to attend TCPD events from the comfort of your own desk.
Once you have undertaken a TCPD event with Blackadders you will be presented with a Certificate of Completion outlining the PEAT 2 objective obtained.
So why not build up a network with other trainees locally and across Scotland while meeting those necessary TCPD hours.
