Trainee Solicitors / PSC

The BPP Professional Skills Course (PSC) is the final stage of your compulsory training to become a solicitor – preparing you for a smooth transition to life in a legal firm. The programme is designed to give you the variety, choice and flexibility to equip you with the practical skills and knowledge to progress in your chosen career.

Our flexible PSC programme offers a wide choice of Electives – allowing you to match your study modules with your career direction and professional interests. BPP’s PSC has been designed against the SRA specification and the CBI Employability Skills framework so you can monitor the development of your professional skills through your study with us. We also provide you with a Skills Portfolio which you can complete to demonstrate your achievements to employers.


As of 2018, BPP now offers the PSC Core* & ALL 24 hours of Electives via our Online Classroom Live, this gives trainees the ability to flexibly complete the PSC from home or the office. BPP are the first and only PSC provider in the UK that offers both the PSC Core & Electives online.
