Now in their 13th year, Damar Training’s annual apprenticeship awards recognise organisations that support apprentices in the workplace.
Damar is one of the country’s leading providers of apprenticeships and, over the past year, has worked with over 2,000 apprentices at more than 500 employers nationwide.
Michelmores’ has implemented a comprehensive apprenticeship programme designed to help individuals develop their business skills and experience while completing formal training and studying towards a qualification. The opportunities cover both potential careers as a lawyer, or within a specialist support function like finance, IT or marketing, and are designed to help develop skills for life in the workplace.
