For the period 1 April 2012 to 1 October 2012 the Ministry of Justice has enrolled 408 members of staff on apprenticeships. Additionally there is one directly recruited apprentice. All are paid members of staff. It is a condition of any new apprenticeship recruitment that we provide training so all our new recruits and those completing ‘up skilling’ are completing qualifications as part of the apprenticeship.
