Can You Improve Your Prospects With Continuous Professional Development Legal Training?

In an ever more competitive world of work, employers look for two things – experience and qualifications. In terms of experience, this can result in something of a catch 22 situation, as it can be hard to get a job with which to accrue experience without first having experience to show your credentials.

That’s where training becomes absolutely vital. If you’re looking to improve your chances of getting a job in the legal sector or are starting from square one and looking to begin a career in personal injury claims, training is an ideal way of boosting your CV and your knowledge base.

Continued Professional Development

As well as a means of learning new skills and vital information, many legal training courses contribute towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points. The use of CPD points as a means to assess an individual’s capabilities and skills is widespread throughout many professional sectors, but for solicitors it is compulsory to complete at least 16 hours of CPD each year.

CPD points are also mandatory for other roles in the legal sector, and this underlines the importance of undergoing training to improve your job prospects. But training should not be undertaking solely with the task of accruing CPD points in mind. Employers don’t want soulless automatons who can recite laws and legal precedents. They want people who are committed to developing their full potential and expanding their skills at every available opportunity.

Giving You An Advantage In The Jobs Market

Given the choice between two prospective employees, one of which has undertaken extensive personal injury training and one who has not, the employer is always going to recruit the former. This is not a merely an abstract musing or random assumption – this is more than likely the exact situation you could find yourself in next time you go for a job interview. By ensuring that you’re the former of the two candidates in this example you will have already given yourself an important advantage in the job marketplace.

Evidence of legal training not only shows that you have acquired the knowledge and skills required to progress in your career, but it also speaks volumes about your commitment and determination to succeed in your chosen field. Employers like to hire people that they know will work hard and are keen to develop themselves further. Most employers aren’t looking for people who will learn the least possible amount of information required and then sit back passively in their existing job role.

Finally, undertaking personal injury training brings you face to face with people in similar circumstances to you. Those you attend a training course with may well be your rivals when it comes to competing for jobs, but they are also people to bounce ideas off, share information and form friendships with.

In today’s economic climate, employers are looking for individuals that they believe will be a long-term asset for their company, whom they can develop and who are competent. Undertaking a course in legal training demonstrates this effectively, and can only help your career prospects in both the long and short term.
