Could you train for ILPA?
Get involved – share your knowledge – we are always looking for new speakers and trainers for our conferences and training sessions
ILPA trainers, like ILPA training sessions and conferences, come in many shapes and sizes. Sessions range from lectures followed by discussion, to courses where participants break into small groups to work on case studies and worked examples, to large full day conferences. Are you?:
- A natural (or trained) trainer, who is able to explain difficult concepts clearly and hold the attention of a room?
- An expert on a particular aspect of immigration law? You may be interested in training at all levels on your specialist area.
- A person with a story to tell – having been involved in a particular lead case or strategic litigation? You may be interested in doing a special course to bring your fellow practitioners up to speed.
If the answer is yes and you are:
- reliable: able to produce course outlines and materials on time and contribute to the smooth running of the session
- helpful and friendly: willng to work with the ILPA secretariat to ensure that your course is presented and prepared as well as possible and happy to lead a discussion among participants, some of whom may have considerable knowledge but be nervous about sharing it
then why not talk to us about training for ILPA? You are welcome to call the Secretariat for an informal chat or send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an expert or have been involved in a recent case but do not feel confident about training, we can look to pair with you with a more experienced trainer. Most ILPA courses have two trainers; very often one barrister and one solicitor, so that all aspects are covered, but this may vary depending on the course.
See our guidance note for more information about training for ILPA.
Take a look at ILPA’s template for a course outline. This is used to design a training course and will help you think through the design of the course. It also provides ILPA with the information needed to describe and publicise the course.
