There were no apprentices employed in the Home Office (excluding agencies and non-departmental public bodies) on 1 June 2012.

Due to the recruitment freeze in the Civil Service, there has been limited opportunity to employ apprentices. The department plans to introduce schemes when the freeze ends and make best use of apprenticeships as suitable opportunities arise. Funding has not been specifically allocated for apprenticeships in 2012-13. The department will however provide the necessary funding for apprentices as suitable opportunities to recruit them arise.
