Training Contract Process


Start early – When sending in your application for a training contract, it’s always best to start early. Any training contract application should be seen as a project in its own right, so make sure you give it the care and attention it requires.


Send in your application – All submissions for training contracts at Tollers should be made through our online application form here.

The closing date is the end of May in the year that you would like the Training Contract to start. Therefore, for September 2025 or January 2026 applications, the closing date is 31st May 2025.


You will receive an acknowledgement of your application via email. If you are successful, you will be invited to attend an interview mid to late August of the same year you applied. (For example, if you apply by the 31st of May 2024, your interview/ assessment day will be held in late August of 2024).


The Assessment day will either be a full morning or a full afternoon and will consist of:

  • A one to one interview with two partners;
  • A written exercise;
  • A 15 minute presentation;
  • Lunch – This is your opportunity to get to know current partners and other members of Tollers who will be in attendance and ask them questions about what life is like as a Trainee solicitor at Tollers.


If you are successful, you will be made an offer to start your training contract. It is important to note, that you must make sure you have completed your LPC before you start your training contract, unless you wish to qualify through taking the SQE. In addition, if you did not study law at university, you must have completed your GDL before your training contract commences.

Any offer to qualify through the Graduate Apprenticeship based Training Contract will be subject to acceptance from BPP. Upon receipt of your offer, you will be asked to register for the Graduate Entry Solicitor Apprenticeship (Day Release Study) at BPP.


On the first day of your training contract, you will be invited to our Northampton Office for induction training and a chance to meet the team.
