To ensure our people reach their potential we support and promote their talent. We work together to establish and plan career goals and provide top level training and development to ensure success.
Realise your potential
Our established training and development programmes are just one element of our commitment to your development. We also customise additional learning to suit your career. You make it part of your development goals and show how it relates to your career path, and we'll support you.
Skills and learning are delivered through a range of forums including:
- external and in-house seminars on professional, personal, and commercial skills,
- legal excellence, technology, basics, and graduate training,
- team training and on-the-job coaching.
Mentors are also available to support your continued growth.
Core Skills programme
There is more to being a successful lawyer than technical excellence. Our Core Skills programme will give you the edge you need to succeed in a today’s competitive market.
This programme will develop your skills in business including sales and marketing, management, technology, client service, and leadership. We will help you build your profile, develop your networks, and your relationships with clients, all of which will help you take your career to the next level.
Knowledge across multiple practice areas means we deliver the best commercial advice to our clients, and provides opportunities for our people to grow their business acumen. To ensure you are kept up-to-date in specialist areas of law our Legal Excellence programme offers regular education on all practice areas. Whether you work in a specialist area or just want to develop a wider knowledge, you are encouraged to participate.
The Graduate programme of 22 modules ensures that new entrants quickly gain a solid understanding of our business products and services, and their contribution.
You will expect the best technology, databases, and access to information. We continue to invest in technology. Recent and planned investments include a national telephone system for improved accessibility and responsiveness, and a financial management system for you to track your client work, and monitor your contribution.
Other learning opportunities
At Kensington Swan we recognise that learning is not just about career skills. Our Fit for Success programme, focusing on body, mind, and money is about learning from others in the community who know what it takes to succeed. The programme offers a variety of activities that help build strong, confident people, and unified teams.
Our people take pride in their contribution to the community and the environment. Partners and staff are encouraged to actively participate in our pro bono programme giving their time and experience to help community initiatives for the disadvantaged, the environment, and social/cultural initiatives.
