“I have been completing my CILEX studies at Weston College over the last three years whilst working as a Conveyancer at a firm of solicitors. Over the last twelve months I have been attending the CILEX classroom sessions at Weston. The content that you need to cover the exam is broken down in weekly sessions so that each area can be covered in depth. The sessions are also planned out to include time for revision sessions, exam technique practice as well as the mock exams. The college have also provided all the lessons to be made available online which is extremely useful for revision purposes and in the event you can't make a specific classroom session. The overall teaching and delivery of the content is without fault.” Ollie Wilson, Foot Anstey – Level 6 Chartered Legal Executive Apprentice
