23rd August 2019

Congratulations to Amelia Taylor, Skyler Traquair and Holly Clutterbuck, who have achieved the CILEx Level 3 Diploma for Legal Secretaries qualification and been offered full-time employment on the Trainee PA Scheme at the international law firm, Bird & Bird LLP in London.

Nancy Elliot, Executive Assistant for the Commercial Department at Bird & Bird, said; “This is the third year we have worked closely with North Kent College as last year we were really impressed with the way the students conducted themselves and it was very evident that the College had prepared them well, I'm pleased to say that this remains true and all the students conducted themselves impeccably during our assessment process, they are a credit to themselves and the College."

“I am so grateful to have been offered the role of Trainee PA at Bird & Bird. It just shows that hard work pays off. I thank the NKC Legal & Office Support team for helping me through everything this past year. Knowing you are believed in just makes you want to try even harder for yourself and the tutors. I have an amazing start to my career and that’s all because of NKC.” Amelia Taylor

“I started at North Kent College enrolled on the Level 2 Legal Secretary course and decided to stay at the college to complete Level 3. The Legal & Office Support team has been so helpful and has taught me so much over the past two years, which has helped me settle quickly into my full-time job as a Trainee PA at Bird & Bird. My tutors on this course have been amazing and so supportive – I could not be more grateful for their help and would definitely recommend the Legal Secretary courses.” Skyler Traquair
“NKC could not have prepared students more for work placements and full-time employment.  After starting in my role as Trainee PA at Bird & Bird, I felt confident and ready for my first day.  I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity of the role of Trainee PA in a London law firm and it wouldn’t have been possible without NKC.” Holly Clutterbuck

Hayley Green, Curriculum Manager of Legal & Office Support at North Kent College, said; “We are delighted that our relationship with Bird & Bird goes from strength to strength, and this year three of our Level 3 students have been successful in achieving places on the Bird & Bird Trainee PA Scheme. We wish Amelia, Skyler and Holly every success for the future.”
