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.

Damar Orange Quotes
“I decided to do the apprenticeship so that I could learn my job in a more technical way. I wanted to learn about law generally, as well as knowing more about the types of law I practice as part of my job role. I have grown to love the almost ‘classroom feel’ to the online workshops. They are sessions with a real live person (not a robot). They are usually someone with an advanced practice of law and it is great to bounce off the other students using our video streams and have actual conversations about the law we are studying.”
