SRA – Competency Information – A B C D

A               B               C                D

From 1 November 2016 solicitors are no longer required to undertake 16 hours of CPD annually

Instead, the SRA’s new regime of continuing competence focuses on the regulatory requirement to ‘provide a proper standard of service’ (Principle 5) and requires every solicitor to:

The competence statement is split into 4 areas:

A – Ethics, professionalism & judgment

B – Technical legal practice

C – Working with other people

D – Managing yourself & your own work

By reference to the 4 areas of the competence statement, solicitors are required to reflect on their practice and plan/identify any training needs required to maintain their competence.

All MASS Training courses aimed at solicitors are coded by reference to the 4 areas of the competence statement (A to D) to assist in the planning and identification of your learning and development needs.

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters. If you are not yet ensuring your staff attend MASS Training courses, you are missing out on some of the best Personal Injury Training available.

    Very informative. Easy to understand. Not a typical course which you can easily lose concentration

    Thoroughly enjoyed it! It was both informative and practical, the fact it was quite hands on and interactive made the subject matter come to life and the topic elements sink in to some sort of structure! I feel like I actually understand some of the fundamental elements
