The BBC will start the two-year Advanced Apprenticeship program in September 2014. Recruits will receive both academic instruction from the Chartered Institute of Legal Executive (CILEx) Level 3 courses and hands-on experience working with the BBC legal team.  The BBC’s new positions are part of a new wave of legal services apprenticeships at firms like Addleshaws and Pinsent Masons with the government seeking to provide more “school leaver” roles within a number of groups including  the legal profession.
