In addition to using the system to advertise, AETOs can also use the Pupillage Gateway to manage the recruitment of pupil barristers.

The Pupillage Gateway offers relevant chambers and other pupillage providers a modern and cost-effective way to manage their end-to-end respective recruitment processes, with numerous benefits and features designed to ease the associated administrative burden. 

The AETO User Guide (PDF, 10.4MB) gives further details about the functions of the system.

Delivered in conjunction with Tribepad, the Pupillage Gateway is a simple Applicant Tracking System (ATS) tailored by the Bar Council to meet the needs of Authorised Education and Training Organisations (AETOs) throughout the pupillage recruitment process.

It is the online application system for pupillage and, under the Bar Standards Board Bar Qualification Manual, must be used by all AETOs to advertise any vacancies for pupillage.
