Crown Prosecution Service - Advocate Panel Scheme 2016-20
Equality Monitoring Questionnaire
The Advocate Panel arrangements follow the fundamental principles of the Equality Act 2010 and our Public Sector
Equality Duty (PSED). Accordingly, all applicants wishing to join the Advocate Panel are required to complete an
Equality Monitoring Questionnaire.
One of the ways the CPS meets this duty, is by collecting and analysing data on the protected characteristics of
applicants to the Panel. This enables us to identify whether groups with protected characteristics are proportionately
represented and take action to encourage groups to apply where a group(s) is underrepresented.
The data we collect is used for statistical analysis and will not be linked to individual applicants or have an impact on
whether or not they are successful in their application. All applications will be judged solely on merit.
