Sherwood has always prided itself on providing high-quality bespoke learning and development programmes and we have delighted to have won (or helped our clients to win) awards for our programme designs and delivery, including:
- LETG Training Organisation/Trainer of the Year
- HR in Law Award for Excellence in Learning & Development

Sherwood also continues to work with a high proportion of each year’s successful applicants for appointment to silk and we are delighted to have provided support to 40 of the new silks in the 2020-21 list of QC appointments at either the application or interview stages, or indeed both. We are particularly proud to have worked with 15 of the 40 successful female applicants with a 71% success rate.
