Pastoral Care at Quadrant Chambers

We understand that pupillage is inevitably a stressful time. To help our pupils we have put in place a pastoral care/ mentoring scheme. Each year an experienced pupillage supervisor will step outside the teaching/ assessment programme  and will be available for the pupils to speak to on an entirely confidential basis. This enables pupils to speak freely about any problems or issues they may be having, so that they can be resolved as swiftly as possible.
When a pupil is offered a tenancy, they are not immediately allocated their own room. Instead, for the first 6 to 12 months of tenancy they will share a room with one of our established juniors. We find that this provides the best transition from pupillage to tenancy.
