CONTINUOUS PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION.

Since it was first introduced in 2011, Law Consultancy Services has provided accredited Continuous Professional Education (CPE): mostly in face-to-face seminar format, but also in distance learning format.

Notaries are required to undertake six hours of study each year with 1 CPE point awarded for each hour of study.  Three of the six hours must be ‘accredited’ the professional regulator – The Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury.  From 1st November 2021 Notarial rules were changed to include that notaries must include anti money laundering training. We have created a course to cover all the information needed.

Evidence of completion must be supplied to the Faculty Office at Practicing Certificate renewal time.

DO NOTARIES NEED COACHING OR CONSULTANCY?

There are under 800 notaries public operating in England and Wales, most are independent, working on their own, often without business support. Having someone knowledgeable to turn to from time-to-time can be very reassuring.  Perhaps a coach.

A coach is someone who provides guidance on day-to-day difficulties.  Coaching is often short-term, delivered within 10 – or 15-minute conversations.  When difficulties arise and answers are sought, the coach will ask (the right) questions, giving the coachee time to reflect.

CONSULTANCY

Ambitious notaries can benefit from the services of a management consultant.  Management consultants focus on people (clients and influencers) and the less quantifiable parts of the business (for example, vision, strategic objectives, forward planning, expansion, and growth).

We, at LCS, have just the expertise and experience you need. Read more.

Our services start with a no-cost exploratory telephone or Zoom conversation.  This is followed with a chargeable, no-obligation-to-proceed,  initial face-to-face meeting to establish how we can help and what outcomes are desired.  

Contact Lisa directly  – by email to lisa@lawconsultancyservices.co.uk or on 07801 947 298 to enquire further.
