‘I would recommend the CPM to other people, especially people who are relatively new to management.’ (Newly qualified solicitor) ‘I really enjoyed it, I thought it was great.’ (Manager with over 10 years’ experience)
Almost 90% of employers said they noticed that their colleague had increased confidence after the course and 100% said their management skills had improved.
The course trainers include: Matthew Howgate, Vicky Ling and Jo Edwards.
The CPM provides 50 hours of specialist training including both active face-to-face sessions and online. The full course fee is £999 for LAPG members and £1,299 for non-members, which covers face-to-face and online course work, printed training materials, three text books (including the LAG Legal Aid Handbook), ‘grab and go’ guides, buffet lunches and refreshments.
Attend the whole course to receive the Certificate or each individual session as a discrete training course. Attending individual sessions also earns you credits towards the full Certificate if you need the flexibility to complete the Certificate over a longer period of time.
We have just concluded the 2019/20 course and are planning our 2020/21 course in London. At this stage the following sessions are designated dates for online events, but we may have to change the schedule to cater for the differences between online and face to face delivery.
