Exciting News for MASS Training!



Damar and MASS Training form new partnership to offer a specialist RTA apprenticeship programme 

Apprenticeship specialists Damar Training and MASS Training, the training arm of the Motor Accident Solicitors Society, have teamed up to enable aspiring personal injury lawyers to access the MASS Diploma in Personal Injury as part of an apprenticeship. Much of the cost of the apprenticeship training and the Diploma can be met via the apprenticeship levy or Government subsidies for non-levy paying employers.

This tailored apprenticeship programme has been designed to be perfect for newly recruited paralegal apprentices in specialist personal injury (PI) and road traffic accident (RTA) firms or in-house teams. Existing non-qualified staff can also benefit, particularly if they are new to fee-earning roles.

This partnership creates a new way for recent entrants to the legal sector to gain skills, knowledge and a nationally recognised qualification without student debt or the risk of not finding a job post-university.

Simon Stanfield, Chair of the Motor Accident Solicitors Society, commented:

We are delighted to announce the partnership between Damar Training and MASS. Damar Training are apprenticeship specialists, and this tailored programme is ideally suited to those new to fee-earning roles.  The MASS Diploma in Personal Injury has been provided for many years and is recognised as a highly sought-after qualification in the PI sector. We look forward to continue to provide high quality training in conjunction with Damar Training in the years ahead.

Jonathan Bourne, Damar Training’s Managing Director added:

As well as learning legal fundamentals and wider business skills, apprentices working in PI/RTA roles need training that focuses on their particular areas of law and practice. MASS Training are experts in PI/RTA law and practice and so partnering with them on this apprenticeship makes perfect sense. The fact that apprentices will also graduate with the MASS Diploma in Personal Injury in addition to their apprenticeship makes this a robust and cost-effective model for law firms and individuals.

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters. If you are not yet ensuring your staff attend MASS Training courses, you are missing out on some of the best Personal Injury Training available.

    Very informative. Easy to understand. Not a typical course which you can easily lose concentration

    Thoroughly enjoyed it! It was both informative and practical, the fact it was quite hands on and interactive made the subject matter come to life and the topic elements sink in to some sort of structure! I feel like I actually understand some of the fundamental elements
