Damar Training announces new flexible learning and enrolment on Conveyancing Law qualifications!

Damar Training, the long-established vocational training provider, has announced some exciting new changes to their conveyancing apprenticeships and their standalone Level 4 and Level 6 Diplomas in Conveyancing Law and Practice. Damar has been a provider of the CLC/SQA Diplomas in Conveyancing Law and Practice since January 2017 and continues to make improvements to the courses to benefit their students.

From June, students will be able to enrol throughout the year and start studying individual units at times to suit them and their employers – without having to wait until the next formal intake date. Students will be able to immediately access a library of material to work through at their own pace including course manuals, online materials and pre-recorded webinars but, importantly, also have access to live online tutor-led workshops and class discussion groups. Students studying as part of an apprenticeship also benefit from 1:1 tutor support delivered in the workplace. The changes provide greater control and flexibility for students and employers.

For students who require more support, the CLC/SQA qualifications can be embedded within the new conveyancing technician and licensed conveyancer apprenticeships. For firms looking to develop the skills of existing or new staff, funding reforms make the apprenticeship route increasingly attractive. Here, the Government contributes 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 can secure 100% funding via their apprenticeship levy.

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.
