The Home Office Apprenticeship scheme has been in operation since 2008, available to existing staff and accessed through Learning and Development provision. Agreement for staff to complete an apprenticeship qualification is controlled locally, therefore no central data is available at present.

The Home Office and its agencies offered internships to twenty two people from July 2012. These internships relate to the Graduate Fast Stream and are exempt from the recruitment freeze. Ten were extended beyond eight weeks, including three which were extended to December 2012.
