The wellbeing of our apprentices, our members of staff and our partner employers is at the heart of everything we do at Damar and our response to the developing Coronavirus pandemic is driven by this ethos.
We are following the NHS and government advice and have made some changes to the way we are working.
We have launched a new programme, called Working Differently, to support our apprentices over this period and we have sent our partner-employers and apprentices communications about this programme. You can find an overview here, and also read our employer FAQs and our apprentice FAQs.
Our support and head office functions continue as usual although our physical office remains closed, with the core team working from home.
We will keep the situation under review and will update this note if there are any further changes.
A successful apprenticeship is always a partnership between an employer, the apprentice, their supervisor and our team at Damar. As the Coronavirus pandemic unfolds, the importance of partnerships, whether at work, at home or in our communities will be ever more apparent. We are absolutely committed to working with you to ensure that apprentices are safe, healthy and supported over the coming weeks and that all our students continue to make progress.
