The Middlesex Evaluation Report found that the WBL framework demonstrated a level of success in providing the legal profession with a learning and development approach to the vocational stage of qualification that assures quality in assessment, and that can be monitored and contribute to enhancing standards across all set ups. The evaluation report also highlighted a number of key recommendations: Undertake further work to set out the skills and attributes for qualifying as a solicitor; Develop progressive steps of achievement linking the LPC, the vocational stage and Day 1 competences; Set out the learning outcomes necessary to demonstrate competence; Consider a credit system to assess incremental learning and to open the door to more flexible routes to qualification and transfer between professions; Retain and develop the use of the portfolio as a learning journal; Train key professionals in coaching and assessing within a WBL framework; Continue the bold moves in widening participation through exploring an accredited learning scheme for prior learning; Address barriers to entry at secondary school level when choices of university, courses and future careers are still in the formative stage.
