What we offer
We aim to offer a rewarding and challenging environment which will prepare exceptional candidates for an exceptional career.
We offer up to four fully funded 12 month pupillages each year. Our pupillage awards for 2014 are £55,000, of which up to £15,000 is available during the BVC year. Applications for pupillage must be made through Pupillage Gateway. Offers of pupillage are made only to those candidates whom we consider have a reasonable prospect of joining 11KBW as tenants.
Each of our pupils is assessed on his or her own merits; our pupils are not in competition with each other. This means that if all of our pupils are of sufficient merit to be offered tenancy they all will be. Indeed, we hope that this is the case.
Our only aim is to get the very best practitioners. As with everything we do, our approach to pupillage is underpinned by a commitment to equal opportunities. We consider applications for mini-pupillage, pupillage and tenancy on merit alone; we disregard irrelevant considerations such as sex, race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, religion or belief; we have proper regard to issues arising from disability.
