CILEx Law School Student Survey


Working with Us

CILEx Law School (CLS) is the wholly owned Law School of The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives specialising in flexible legal training.

Legal Assessor and Trainers

CLS are looking to hire assessors based at home with travel in or around the following areas:

  • Leeds or Manchester area
  • Birmingham/West Midlands
  • South of London, Hampshire, Surrey with travel to London

Full-time but part-time will also be considered circa £27,000.00 pa (pro-rata if part-time)
To start January 2017 or earlier

Due to expansion, CILEx Law School are currently looking to recruit legal assessors in the areas above to assess on the following programmes: Intermediate Apprenticeship in Legal Administration/Business Administration (Level 2), Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services (Level 3) and the Paralegal trailblazer.

The successful candidates will be occupationally competent: legal practice experience and qualified to CILEx Level 6/degree level would be ideal. Any area of practice is acceptable. Teaching or lecturing experience of learners post GCSE is also desirable.

Full UK driver’s licence, vehicle and strong internet connection are essential.

Applying to be a Freelance Law, Legal Practice or Professional Skills Tutor

CILEx Law School (CLS) often has opportunities for freelance tutors for our CILEx subjects as well as out customised training courses. The role involves marking and providing feedback on students’ assignments electronically. Senior tutors can also become involved in writing and updating the materials we use to deliver courses to our students. Those with lecturing experience may be interested in our series of face to face revision days and online webinar tutoring.

As a tutor, it is essential that you have the following:

• A law qualification to degree level, which includes Graduate Membership of CILEx
• Experience of marking
• Up to date legal knowledge of the law subjects that you mark
• Excellent written communication skills
• Computer literacy

A teaching qualification in further or higher education is desirable, although applicants without such a qualification but with teaching and/or training experience will still be considered. We would particularly welcome applications from current legal practitioners with some teaching or training experience.

We agree a workload to suit the circumstances of individual tutors so that this role can be performed around other work and/or domestic commitments.

You will be provided with all relevant course materials, and tutor mark schemes. You will also receive a copy of the CILEx Journal each month. Our Academic Team will also provide you with ongoing support.

These programmes are similar to the Intermediate Apprenticeship in Legal Administration but do not require workplace visits.

To apply, please email your completed application form with an attached CV to Ruby Denton.
