HMPPS has made 20 apprenticeships available to staff since 2017.

There are plans to expand the number of apprenticeships offered to staff across the Ministry of Justice and its agencies, including Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service.

To date, HMPPS have not met their annual apprenticeship targets due to the need to delay the Prison Officer apprenticeship launch until annual recruitment levels make this operationally feasible. HMPPS forecast to meet their annual target from 2020-21 onwards.

There are currently no apprenticeship completions within Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service. Completion data will be available as appropriate from providers.
