The Crown Prosecution Service currently employs 183 apprentices, which equates to 3.3% of the workforce. As at 28 February 2018 the Government Legal Department had 19 apprentices representing 0.84% of the workforce. Whilst the SFO currently does not have any apprentices it does remain committed to offering apprenticeships as a means of bringing through talent and has been employing apprentices since 2011/12. There are currently no apprentices in either the Attorney General’s Office or Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate.
