Data Protection and Information Governance Apprenticeships

Damar are currently developing our training programme for the new data protection and information governance apprenticeship standard. The apprenticeship has now been approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education, and we will be able to start enrolling and delivering on this programme later in 2022.

Typical job roles which would be suitable for this apprenticeship include data protection lead, data protection manager, information compliance officer, information governance lead, and privacy officer.

The Damar Difference

  • We will apply our blended delivery model, with our tried-and-tested online platforms, that allow us to deliver on a flexible and national basis

Data Protection Training Delivery Model

Local and national employers will be able to access our 100% work-based training delivery model.

As with our other apprenticeships, this programme will be delivered via group and one-to-one (online) meetings and workshops. Each session will have a clear objective and outcome, relevant content, demonstration and practice opportunity. Regular feedback will be provided throughout the course and post-training content will be provided for extra learning and development.

The usual eligibility criteria for apprentices will apply, such as the apprentice must work more than 50% of their time in England and the apprenticeship must allow the individual to gain substantive new skills, knowledge and/or behaviours.

Any other specific eligibility requirements will be updated here as we further develop our training programme. 

Employers that pay the Apprenticeship Levy are able to pay all of the training costs from their Apprenticeship Levy account.

Employers that do not pay the levy, as well as large employers who have spent their levy budget, pay just 5% of the overall cost, with the government paying the balance. For employers with fewer than 50 employees the 5% contribution is waived for apprentices aged 16-18.

There is never any cost to the apprentice, although apprentices’ salaries may reflect the investment being made by the employer.
