Transcript of "PEAT2 and CPD"

  1. 1. PEAT 2 and CPD All change in 2011….. <ul><li>Liz Campbell Collette Paterson </li></ul><ul><li>Director (Education and Training) Deputy Director (Education and Training) </li></ul>
  2. 2. TODAY: <ul><li>Professional Education And Training Stage 2 (PEAT 2): </li></ul><ul><li>Key principles of PEAT (and PEAT 2) </li></ul><ul><li>PEAT 2 in practice </li></ul><ul><li>Preparing the profession for PEAT 2 </li></ul><ul><li>TCPD and CPD: </li></ul><ul><li>TCPD – supporting PEAT 2 </li></ul><ul><li>PCC/TCPD transition and support </li></ul><ul><li>TCPD licences </li></ul><ul><li>Qualifying activities for TCPD and CPD </li></ul>
  3. 3. KEY PRINCIPLES OF PEAT (AND PEAT 2) <ul><li>The PEAT Outcomes are at the root of PEAT 2: </li></ul><ul><li>‘ ensuring competence, promoting excellence ’ – the PEAT 2 Outcomes aim to assure a minimum standard relating to the qualifying solicitor’s professional approach to the delivery of legal services, in a diverse legal profession. </li></ul><ul><li>PEAT Outcomes cannot and are not intended to be assessed individually. Through both informal and formal reviews, development needs can be identified both proactively and reactively. </li></ul><ul><li>PEAT 2 Outcomes should be considered in the context of the traineeship taking place. Outcomes are not weighted but the context of the traineeship and relevant knowledge is critical . </li></ul>
  4. 4. KEY PRINCIPLES OF PEAT (AND PEAT 2) <ul><li>The entry and exit standards complement the PEAT 2 Outcomes: </li></ul><ul><li>Trainers can rely on the standard of the ‘ day 1 trainee ’, in other words the standard of the Diploma graduate, when devising and running PEAT 2 training programmes. </li></ul><ul><li>Trainers know that successful completion of the PEAT 2 Outcomes means the standard of the ‘ qualifying solicitor ’ has been achieved. </li></ul><ul><li>PEAT 2 Outcomes reflect the qualifying stage and no earlier stage of achievement. Using the PEAT 2 Outcomes, development needs can be identified both proactively and reactively, increasingly as the traineeship reaches the final stages. </li></ul>
  5. 5. PEAT 2 IN PRACTICE <ul><li>PEAT 2 Outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>Entry and exit standards complement the Outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>ARE SUPPORTED BY: </li></ul><ul><li>the PEAT 2 Record. </li></ul><ul><li>PEAT Quarterly Performance Reviews (PQPRs). </li></ul><ul><li>Trainee Continuing Professional Development (TCPD) </li></ul><ul><li>various licences – Licence A (PQPR) and Licence B (TCPD Internal) for training organisations, as well as Licence C (TCPD External) for other providers of TCPD. </li></ul><ul><li>a suite of guidance - for trainers, for providers, for those in training. </li></ul>
  6. 6. PEAT 2 IN PRACTICE: PEAT 2 RECORD <ul><li>PEAT 2 record: </li></ul><ul><li>is an online tool, through which each trainee will complete a progress diary, plan for and record PQPRs, and log TCPD </li></ul><ul><li>the diary replaces existing logbooks, as the focus is no longer on practice areas but rather ‘professionalism’. </li></ul><ul><li>supports the focus on ‘professionalism’ and the PEAT 2 Outcomes - trainees are encouraged to record achievements in the context of the PEAT 2 Outcomes, and their increasing legal knowledge and practical application of law. </li></ul><ul><li>encourages trainers to informally appraise trainees as trainers will have access to the PEAT 2 record </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li> MEMBER LOGIN </li></ul><ul><li>PEAT 2 RECORD </li></ul><ul><li> PQPRS </li></ul><ul><li> TCPD </li></ul>

  9. 10. PEAT 2 IN PRACTICE: PQPRs <ul><ul><li>remove the former numerical grading system (1-9), and also references to ‘competent’, ‘not competent’ and ‘no opportunity to demonstrate’. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>are based on the PEAT 2 Outcomes, encouraging proactive and reactive approach to development. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>focus on identifying and measuring trainees’ development needs, and an action plan to meet those needs (through in-office work, or through TCPD) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>in association with guidance the Society will issue , support trainers or trainees who have concerns about the standard of the ‘qualifying solicitor’ being met by the trainee – EARLY. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>are intended to be simple and consistently applied (in organisations, and across the profession) </li></ul></ul>
  10. 12. PEAT 2 IN PRACTICE: LICENCES <ul><ul><li>Forms of licence are: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Licence A - PEAT Quarterly Performance Reviews (PQPRS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Licence B – Licensed Trainee CPD (TCPD) Provider (Internal) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Licence C - Licensed Trainee CPD (TCPD) Provider (External) </li></ul></ul>

  12. 14. TCPD – SUPPORTING PEAT 2 <ul><li>SUPPORTING ACHIEVEMENT OF THE PEAT 2 OUTCOMES </li></ul><ul><li>it is widely recognised that regular formal education and training is necessary to supplement and enhance ‘on the job’ learning </li></ul><ul><li>TCPD is structured learning undertaken over and above the normal commitments of trainee solicitors to assist the achievement of the PEAT 2 Outcomes and ‘ The Standard of the Qualifying Solicitor’ </li></ul><ul><li>No two trainees will have the same TCPD ‘journey’ </li></ul><ul><li>TCPD leads into CPD and lifelong learning </li></ul>
