Damar Training, based in the centre of Stockport have announced the winners of their 2019 Apprenticeship Awards at the close of National Apprenticeship Week.
Now in their 14th year, Damar Training’s annual apprenticeship awards are a celebration of the achievements of apprentices, their employers and line managers. The results, released during National Apprenticeship Week, show once again the difference that apprenticeships are making to individuals and organisations and also the commitment shown by employers and managers.
This year’s awards attracted a record number of entries from across more than 500 employers and 2,000 apprentices that Damar has worked with over the past year.
