As a not-for-profit organisation, our first priority is our students. The ICCA Bar Course is focussed on enabling students to achieve the best of themselves, from the quality of education and skills training we provide to supporting students to achieve success in securing pupillage and entry into the profession.
The Vocational Stage of Bar training, formerly referred to as the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), was reformed in 2019 following the Future Bar Training consultation. The following year, in 2020, the ICCA was authorised by the Bar standards Board to launch an innovative new Bar training course.
Since then, ICCA students have delivered exceptional results, both in their assessment results and in their success in obtaining pupillage.
