Damar Training launches CLC/SQA Conveyancing Apprenticeships and Diplomas

Damar Training, the long-established training provider, has partnered with the Council for Licensed Conveyancers and the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) to offer the new conveyancing apprenticeships as well as the Level 4 and Level 6 Diplomas in Conveyancing Law and Practice.

The Diplomas are studied via a flexible and enriched distance-learning programme, delivered by tutors with significant experience of delivering the CLC qualifications. As well as course manuals and online materials, students attend webinars and interact with their tutors on their course forum. Fees can be spread across the course duration.

For firms looking to develop the skills of existing or new staff, funding reforms make the apprenticeship route increasingly attractive. Conveyancing apprenticeships offer a way to achieve the CLC qualifications as part of a wider study programme.  Here, the Government will contribute at least 90% of the cost of training for an apprentice at a smaller firm to become a conveyancing technician or licensed conveyancer. Larger firms are able to secure 100% funding via their apprenticeship levy.

For those who are looking to study the Diplomas on a standalone basis, the next intake of the course is later this month with the next intake in June. Apprentices can start throughout the year.

Sheila Kumar, Chief Executive of the Council for Licensed Conveyancers says:

“We are delighted that Damar has become a provider of education leading to qualification as a CLC Lawyer – Licensed Conveyancer by distance learning and the exciting new apprenticeship route. The new education providers will widen access to a career in the legal profession yet further and increase the pipeline of newly qualified specialist property lawyers to meet demand in the sector”.

Damar Limited


Damar Training is a long-established specialist apprenticeship provider. Founded in 1980, Damar works with employers in the legal and justice sectors nationally. We currently have over 500 apprentices in these sectors and our team supports law firms with:

  • The planning and design of apprenticeship programmes, including support with the Apprenticeship Levy
  • Apprentice recruitment
  • Delivery of training and assessment

In relation to conveyancing, we worked with the Council of Licensed Conveyancers and the Scottish Qualifications Authority on the development and now delivery of the new conveyancing apprenticeship standards. We also offer the standalone CLC/SQA Diplomas in Conveyancing Law and Practice for students not wishing to follow that apprenticeship route. The Diplomas and the apprenticeships offer a flexible and good value route for anyone wanting to become a qualified conveyancing lawyer. For apprentices at smaller firms the Government contributes 90% of the costs. At larger employers, the full cost is met via the Apprenticeship Levy.

Owned by lawyers and with a growing national legal delivery team, Damar has played a pivotal role in the creation and now delivery of specialist apprenticeships for the legal sector. We were part of the team that created the first legal apprenticeship – the higher apprenticeship in legal services – and we have played an active part in the development of the new apprenticeships standards for:

  • Paralegal
  • Solicitor
  • Conveyancing Technician
  • Licensed Conveyancer

We are inspected by Ofsted and have a direct contract with the government to draw down apprenticeship funding for employers.

In relation to the solicitor apprenticeship, we partner with The University of Law.

Uniquely amongst providers Damar is able to offer firms access to both legal apprenticeships and apprenticeships for support functions, including legal and general administration, team leading, management and customer service roles. Through partners, we also offer IT and other more specialist apprenticeships.
