Partnered with leaders in legal education

We have partnered with Damar Training to implement their short form Level 7 Solicitor Apprenticeship. This is an 18-month programme through which our Solicitor Apprentices will undertake the Solicitors Qualification Exams (‘SQE’) – undertaking learning and exams to complete SQE1 and SQE2. The legal education is provided through a platform established by BARBRI, a global leader in vocational legal education.

A team by your side

Throughout the 2 years, all Solicitor Apprentices will be supported in their personal and professional development by rradar’s Training Principal, Head of Learning and Development and our team of Legal Managers and Supervisors across the legal departments. Each Apprentice will also be assigned a dedicated mentor within the firm along with a Learning Coach from Damar, offering guidance and support throughout their apprenticeship journey.

The programme is structured to facilitate continuous professional development, allowing apprentices to grow both personally and within their legal careers. By investing in the education and development of our future solicitors, we contribute to the growth and success of our firm.

The apprenticeship programme enhances our commitment to diversity and inclusion by providing access to legal education and career opportunities to a broader range of individuals.
