Work experience placements in law have fallen by 11.2 percent this year, with 150 less places available than the 1407 on offer in 2017, research conducted by The Knowledge Academy suggests.
The Knowledge Academy analysed findings from ‘High Flyers’ and found that other sectors have also experienced a decrease in the number of work placements. These sectors include: accounting and professional services (3.9 percent), banking and finance (8.9 percent) and investment banking (7.2 percent).
The research also found that 36 percent of the UK’s 100 most reputable and successful employers want an increase in the quality of students they hire for their placement schemes and 13 percent are hoping to attract more applications for their placements in the future.
The Knowledge Academy is a provider of training courses. It has the capability to deliver over 30,000 courses, in 1200 locations, across 200 countries, and says it has trained over 1 million delegates.
