If you’re about to come to the end of your apprenticeship, you may be wondering what’s next?
Different pathways that our apprentices have taken include:
- Remaining in their current role now they are fully competent
- Undertaking a higher level apprenticeship
- Gaining a promotion and/or taking on more responsibility
- Moving on to a different company
- Studying a part-time higher education course
As you come to the end of your apprenticeship, talk to your coach and line manager about what options are available to you. At Damar, we do have progression pathways for a number of our apprenticeships.
