Accountancy Apprenticeships

Our employers often tell us about the amazing benefits that accountancy apprenticeships bring to their organisation. From new ideas and energy, to improved ways of working, an apprentice can be a valuable addition to any accountancy team.

Below are some quotes from the accounting employers and teams that Damar Training currently work with about how our apprenticeships are driving impact within their organisation.

To find out more about our apprenticeship offer, please see our accounting apprenticeship page.

Toni Carter, Apprenticeship and Raising Participation Co-Ordinator at Rochdale Borough Council:

“At Rochdale Borough Council we believe apprentices are the future of our workforce so we commit to recruiting, inducting, supporting and celebrating all the apprentices that join us. They bring enthusiasm, passion, new ideas and talent into our organisation. 89% of our apprentices move into a positive destination upon completion of their apprenticeship, with many staying within the authority.

“Damar have always offered a flexible and supportive approach to our accounting apprenticeship programme, including supporting our specialised induction week, and offering bespoke learning options and intensive tutoring that sees apprentices take on a journey of real value and learning via our partnership working.”

Amy Sildatki, Client Manager at R.F. Miller & Co:

“Our accountancy apprentice has added so much value to our whole team since she joined the office. She puts into practice everything she has learned on her course and continues to be inquisitive and eager to improve her working practices, all whilst she provides impeccable support to other members of staff.

“Damar have been a real asset in supporting and encouraging her and we have found that the communication, help and advice have been second-to-none. We are fully informed of her progress at all stages of her apprenticeship, meaning a completely fluid relationship between Damar as a training provider and us as an employer. We really couldn’t ask for anymore!”

Claire Dowd, Finance Operations Assistant at Pinsent Masons:

“The accountancy apprentices at Pinsent Masons provide invaluable day-to-day support to our teams. After completing each AAT module the apprentices use and build upon their learning, which adds immediate value to our business. The experience gained with these apprenticeships allow for future progression within our firm and they are helping to shape our future workforce.

“Our experience with Damar is that they are supportive, helpful and reliable. They take care of everything and they do it really well. This allows us to concentrate on investing in the apprentices and their development within our business.  Historically, we have always recruited for level 2 and level 3 apprentices. However, due to our positive relationship with Damar, we’re now moving on to offer level 4 accounting apprenticeships.”

Sasha Ivanova at NEC Europe:

“Our accounting apprentices have significantly enhanced our organisation’s productivity by providing fresh perspectives and dedicated support to our financial operations, and contributing to improved accuracy and streamlined processes. They have demonstrated an invaluable contribution to our organisation through their strong IT skills, enabling us to automate and optimise financial processes. Their active involvement in the implementation of a new financial system has been instrumental in ensuring a smooth business transition.

“Damar’s approach to accounting apprenticeships offers structure and support, making it easier for both apprentices and employers to track progress whilst ensuring steady advancement and skill development within our organisation. We plan to continue using Damar’s services for our future apprenticeship needs.”
