Witness care apprenticeships

Information about witness care apprenticeships that you can apply for.

Witness care units provide a single point of contact for victims and witnesses, minimising the stress of attending court and keeping victims and witnesses up to date with any news in a way that is convenient to them.

Training opportunities

This apprenticeship is designed to ensure that those working within the witness care units provide a high quality service to victims and witnesses.

You’ll need to tailor your advice for witnesses to meet their individual needs so that they are able and willing to attend court. This in turn should reduce the number of trials either abandoned or adjourned, help bring more offenders to justice, improve public confidence in the Criminal Justice System and help reduce public spending.
