answer text <p>The Attorney General’s Office does not directly employ apprentices. The Attorney General’s Office has around 50 staff, the majority of whom are on two year loans to the Office. One such staff member is an apprentice, employed by the Government Legal Department and loaned to the Attorney General’s Office. The Law Officer Departments, (Attorney General’s Office, Government Legal Department, Crown Prosecution Service, Serious Fraud Office and HM Inspectorate of Crown Prosecution Service) compile and submit quarterly apprenticeship returns to the Cabinet Office and these are published on <a href="http://www.Gov.uk" target="_blank">www.Gov.uk</a> . Apprentices located within HM Inspectorate of Crown Prosecution Service and the Attorney General’s Office are reported to Cabinet Office within the total figures for the Government Legal Department.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) has had officials take sick leave for reasons relating to stress in the last 12 months. However, we are not in a position to release this data, as due to the small size of the office this could lead to individuals becoming identifiable.</p><p>The AGO is highly committed to the health and wellbeing of its staff, and works to help them to manage stress in the workplace. The AGO offers a range of guidance and services in place to support staff, including launching its own wellbeing statement and strategy, and receiving the commitment of the Executive Board to wellbeing. The staff volunteer led wellbeing group has organised numerous events for colleagues to help improve wellbeing and manage stress. The AGO also offers free counselling services for staff members.</p> more like this
