Fees & Funding

The Education and Skills Funding agency (ESFA) has allocated funding to train thousands of professionals in work to gain further occupational qualifications. The ESFA provides 95% of the funding and your practice pays only 5%. As an approved registered government training provider Datalaw can take advantage of this funding on your firm’s behalf to provide legal qualifications.


The majority of apprentices work full-time jobs, however 20% of their time throughout the Level 3 Paralegal apprenticeship must be spent studying and learning outside of the workplace.

Not necessarily. A Level 3 Paralegal Apprenticeship can be a worthy challenge that allows you to learn while earning real-world experience and abilities, but it also calls for resilience, organisation, and self-discipline.

The employer will decide on this. The specific employer should be consulted. Remember that apprentices are compensated for both their regular working hours and any associated training.

After completing all 7 modules you will then have completed a full portfolio of paralegal evidence and will have an end-point assessment call where you will discuss your portfolio of evidence with an external assessor. After successful completion of this stage, you will be issued with a level 3 paralegal diploma and will be registered as a practising paralegal..

As an apprentice you will be assigned a Progress Tutor and also have access to our resources and apprenticeship platforms.

One you have finished your Level 3 Paralegal Apprenticeship you will become a qualified paralegal and fee-earner. You will also have the opportunity to progress onto our Level 7 Solicitor Apprenticeship to become a qualified solicitor
