Volume 476: debated on Thursday 22 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many (a) apprenticeships and (b) advanced apprenticeships there were in (i) his Department and (ii) the agencies for which he is responsible in the most recent year for which figures are available. (206795)

Six members of staff employed within the Ministry of Justice undertook apprenticeships during the financial year 2007-08.

The Ministry of Justice is participating in the Apprenticeships Pathfinder being organised by Government Skills, with an intake likely in September. Numbers are likely to be substantially larger than in previous years. We are also participating in the Civil Service West Midlands Apprenticeships pilot.
