National Apprenticeship Week: Chantel Horton

Chantel Horton has been with the Higgs LLP team for four-and-a-half years having started out as an office assistant with the firm.

Now the 25-year-old has turned her attention to a Paralegal Apprenticeship whilst working in the Private Client team, which she hopes to complete by the end of this year.

Chantel said: “The apprenticeship is going really well and I can’t believe how quick the time has gone. I am very grateful for the ongoing support I get from both my tutor and manager within the Court of Protection team.

“I would certainly recommend an apprenticeship to anyone. They are more than possible to complete and the option of learning and progressing your career whilst working is a great way forward.”

Chantel has two half-days in which to complete her apprenticeship work, during which she carries out research into the topics covered by the 12 modules on the course.

The apprenticeship will conclude with an interview.

Chantel added: “Within this time I also attend online webinars and have coaching sessions with my tutor every eight to 12 weeks to check my progress.”

Chantel said she hopes her apprenticeship and on-the-job experience will stand her in good stead for a future in law.
