Last Updated: 11 Nov 2016
CILEx (Chartered Institute of Legal Executives)
The Awards, Certificate and Diploma for Legal Secretaries are qualifications for administrators wanting to develop a career in the legal sector. With specialist units in legal processing and legal terminology these qualifications support the skills industry and employers need in this sector http://www.cilex.org.uk/

Developed with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) these qualifications will help you build on your administration skills to prepare you for a job in a legal or business environment.

These qualifications replace the 7465 Legal Secretaries.



These qualifications will also form part of the new apprenticeship package this package will be available for all nations for the Business and Administration and Legal and Medical Administration qualifications under 9465.

A new qualification, 5528-12/13 Level 2 and 3 Diploma in Legal Administration, will be created using the new Business Administration units developed by CFA. 5528-12/13 uses the new 7655 Legal Secretaries units alongside the new Business Administration units to create a hybrid qualification. These are due to go live Sept 14 and will replace the current Technical Certificates within the current Legal pathway in the Business and Administration Apprenticeships. 7655 will still be available as a qualification in its own right outside of the apprenticeship.
