    Hey everyone!

    With our new Community Managers now working in the forum and the new application cycle in full swing, we are restarting our giveaway for a free month of TCLA Premium (Bronze) every week. You will also receive a new badge titled 'Forum Winner'.

    If you are already a future trainee, you can instead opt in to receive a £5 Amazon Gift Card instead of the free subscription to TCLA Premium.

    Why do we do this?

    We want to celebrate those of you who give back to the forum on a day-to-day basis. It's our opportunity to show you that the help you provide doesn't go unnoticed because people like you keep our community a supportive and friendly place.

    What do I do if I win?

    Please email [email protected] with the subject line 'Forum Winner'. If you are a future trainee, please also indicate whether you would prefer a gift card.

    Award this week:

    To kick us off this week, I would like to award the first prize to @33c. Over the past few months, I have seen such a variety of helpful posts from you from reassurance to guidance on motivations. You clearly know your stuff and it's a pleasure to see you give back to others in such a kind and supportive manner, especially as a future trainee.

    Thank you!

    @Dheepa @Jessica Booker @George Maxwell @AvniD @James Carrabino

    For this week's award, the Community Manager team would like to recognise @Kubed for their recent posts. We have found Kubed's posts to be great in terms of the advice they give but also great in terms of encouragement too.

    Thank you Kubed for continuing to help guide people when they are looking for advice and opinions.

    Hello everyone! For this week's winner I'd like to recognise @Ole1999 for their lighthearted post! The application cycle can be really intense and high-pressure around this time, which is why I really appreciate their effort to lighten the mood in the forum with some humour. Congratulations! 🥳

    Hi everyone! I am thrilled to announce @futuretraineesolicitor as the winner for this past week, owing to their sequence of informative posts beginning here and their generally excellent engagement with the forum.

    Thank you so much, everyone. It really means a lot. I would be lying if I said I wasn't expecting this. 😊 Just one follow up question, please. Would it be possible for me to swap this against any other TCLA service, for example, an application review? The reason being, I've already had access to the courses since I was a TCLA Scholar.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi everyone, sorry for the delay in announcing this week's winner! I'm picking @Nicole15 for the support and reassurance she has consistently provided to other members on the forum (here and here to name a few). These kinds of posts are exactly what's made the forum community what it is today! Thank you @Nicole15 ☺️

    Thank you very much Dheepa and the TCLA team! This brought a smile to my face this morning - happy to help others where I can. Throughout this journey, I have had many people help me along the way so it is only fair to give back. :)

    I also forgot to nominate someone last week.

    So apologies for the delay, but I'd like to nominate @SLKEJRWOI97 for the following thread and subsequent posts that pulled together our best information on how to prepare for assessment centres.


    As our forums continue to grow, we have a lot of available information but it becomes harder to navigate, and so having a thread like this that pulls together useful posts/content across the forums is incredibly useful.

    Thank you @SLKEJRWOI97 !

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate this. I totally agree, the forums have grown, which is amazing, but there are so many words of wisdom that aren't easily searchable or found and can easily get lost in the reams of posts that we have.

    The bookmark tool is amazing so I'm happy that we were able to create a central thread to consolidate these posts so people don't need to search past threads endlessly.

    Thanks again @Jessica Booker :)

    It's going to have to be @Jane Smith as our forum winner for the past week - congratulations!! You have offered consistently exceptional advice on the BPP LPC thread, most recently in this very thorough post.

    There are some members who are definitely able to bring things to the table that the TCLA team cannot, and you are one of them @Jane Smith! Thank you for all of your help and please reach out to @Jaysen about an appropriate method of rewarding your achievement :)

    I am delighted to say we will be giving @Rob93 this week's award.

    @Rob93 has provided so many helpful responses to people over the last week, and especially this weekend. From insightful posts on a firm's structure, to links to information of firm's websites, to being willing to explain their frustrations with their own recruitment journey to date in such a positive and constructive way to help others know they are not alone with their disappointments.

    All of these posts have had such a positive contribution to the TCLA community, so the award is very well deserved.

    Thank you Rob93 - @Jaysen will be in contact with you about your award.
