What counts as QWE?
The two years of full-time (or equivalent) QWE can be split across four organisations as long as a qualified solicitor confirms the experience, typically the trainee's supervisor. QWE may take shape in the form of a law degree placement year, working for a law clinic, as a paralegal within a law firm, or with an in-house legal team. Also, QWE may be advertised as a training contract or as a solicitor apprenticeship.DID YOU KNOW? Candidates can gain QWE before, during, or after they sit their SQE assessments. You can also use experience from previous roles without any time limitations, giving candidates more flexibility to qualification.
Candidates manage their own QWE
Candidates are responsible for managing their own QWE and are encouraged to use our QWE e-Journal which is an interactive portfolio designed for collating QWE and enables more reflective learning.Basic candidate members get free access to our downloadable QWE recording template matched against all of the SRA competencies.
What does a candidate supervisor need to do?
1. Supervise the casework undertaken by candidate 2. Review candidate's performance regularly 3. Conduct appraisals of candidate's overall performance
Confirming a candidate's QWE
Once the candidate is ready to officially record the QWE with the SRA, they will do so via their own MySRA account and the supervisor will then receive an email notification to log into their own MySRA account and confirm the QWE digitally.
