Law firm chair joins training centre board

The chair of a leading regional law firm has joined the board of a provider of online lawyer, paralegal and post-qualification training as a non-executive director.

Kevin Rogers inset, partner at Northamptonshire practice Wilson Browne Solicitors, is one of several appointments as the Law Training Centre continues its growth plans. The centre provides accredited online legal education and qualifications from the major legal regulators and awarding bodies. Mr Rogers is full of praise for the organisation, in particular its scholarship.

He adds: “I am really excited to join Law Training Centre on this journey. There are so many things to like about the ethos of the business and I cannot wait to get started. The commercial ambition is there for sure but so is a commitment to hold dear the drive for excellence while supporting every single learner’s achievements, whatever their background. The scholarship scheme, for example, really blew me away.”

He is also immediate past president of Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, a previous CPD lecturer and an advocate at the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership for linking the classroom with business. “I have worked in firms in London and Manchester but come from a working class background. It genuinely was the honest passion of the board, their willingness to seek constant improvement that hooked me in from the start,” Mr Rogers says.

Also joining the LTC board is Faye Reizopoulou as finance director. She has worked with a number of Academy Trusts and holds Specialist Leader of Education designation by the National College of Teaching and Learning. She is currently deputy chief financial officer of Leigh Academies Trust.

“Both are truly aligned to our mission to help break down the barriers to a career in law and help learners achieve life-changing legal qualifications,” says the centre’s co-founder and strategy director Dino Dubbabh.
