Once you have worked through the manual for the unit, and attempted the practice exercises within it, you can request your assignment.
How are the units assessed?
Each unit is assessed by one timed assignment taken under the supervision of your employer or another third party.
If you think you might be interested in the broader City & Guilds/CILEx Level 3 Diploma for Legal Secretaries, we recommend that you apply for all courses at the same time. You will only receive a Diploma if you register for it at the beginning. Alternatively you can study for the Award now and then study separately for a Level 2 or Level 3 Certificate for Legal Secretaries.
