What our clients say

"I thought the course was very relevant, thorough and up-to-date. The feedback provided by my tutor was very helpful. The method of study was easily manageable within my work schedule. I believe the course cemented the foundation for the work I currently do, and that it helped me to set a standard of excellence for myself in my work, which I am confident that I will continue to meet. I am proud to be a Qualified Paralegal (Q. Inst. Pa.) in Wills, Probate & Administration, and I would wholeheartedly recommend the course to anyone wishing to further their career in this area. I have certainly never looked back!"
Vivien Anne Driver, Probate Executive, Symes Bains Broomer Solicitors

"The qualification was more appropriate to the real world than any of the others that I looked at. Its modular style suited my life as I was able to study and work on the qualification whilst still doing my day job. The practical focus of the qualification suited the way I learn more than the other theory-focussed qualifications that are out there. The independent Will Writing sector gets a bad reputation - qualified practitioners are few and far between. A formal qualification allows my business to differentiate itself in the market place, and safeguards my business with a view to potential future regulation of the sector."
Nick Ash, CLT Specialist Paralegal Qualification Graduate, Director, Will & Probate Services (Estate Planning) Ltd
