Have you taken your SRA Self-Assessment?

SRA’s new approach to CPD focuses on continuing competence and is built around compliance with Principle 5 of the SRA Handbook which stipulates that solicitors must ‘provide a proper standard of service to your clients’. As such, all practising solicitors regardless of area of law must now complete continuous CPD training in the four key areas using a five step procedure.

Four Key Areas

  • 1. Ethics, professionalism and judgement
  • 2. Technical legal practice
  • 3. Managing yourself and your work
  • 4. Working with other people

Five Step Procedure

  • 1. Reflect - Reflecting on your training needs
  • 2. Plan - Creating an action plan
  • 3. Action - Implementing your plan
  • 4. Evaluate - Assess your progress
  • 5. Record - All of the above must be recorded for SRA evidencing

How Does Datalaw's System Work?

1. Reflection

The online, 23 question, multiple-choice, SRA Self Assessment that our experts have created allows you to effortlessly reflect on the four areas mandatory of training.

2. Plan

From your Self Assessment answers, our system will automatically create a bespoke training plan for your training needs.

3. Act

The training plan also suggests easy to watch courses that you can access directly from the training plan.

4. Evaluate

All action items in your plan can have a notes section allowing you to evaluate your progress. If you have done the training item via other methods such as in-house training, this can be quickly recorded with prefilled descriptions in the Action Items Note section.

5. Record

Once you have started a course from the training plan, progress is automatically tracked by the system and is recorded directly in your training plan.
