Custodial Care Services play a crucial part in the day to day running of the Justice System. Employers have helped to design these new Intermediate and Advanced Level Apprenticeships to attract new people into the sector to upskill the workforce replacing those who leave or retire and to professionalise the service.

Intermediate apprentices will support prison officers or the operational line dealing with members of the public, visitors to the establishment and prisoners through a variety of tasks. Advanced Apprentices will look after the security and welfare of adults, children and young people and will train as a Prison Officer / Prison Custody Officer, Detention Custody Officer, in an immigration or detention centre, or as an Escort Custody Officer, supervising and escorting prisoners between courts, prisons, immigration and detention centres.
