DIRECTOR of Public Prosecutions Barbara Mills has launched a training scheme for Crown Prosecutors, aimed at establishing a national standard of advocacy throughout the CPS.
All new prosecutors joining the CPS from 1 April will undertake a formal programme of training, covering areas such as professional ethics, courtroom etiquette and presentation skills.
Speaking at the formal opening of a second CPS headquarters office in York earlier this month, Mills said: "The introduction of this training standard will demonstrate to the criminal justice system as a whole that the CPS is committed to advocacy of the highest quality."
The National Advocacy Training Programme will comprise formal training, on-the-job training and distance learning study.
