Regarding travelling in your uniform if you have it on but a plain jacket or coat over it is his acceptable?
I think the key thing is not to display where you work and what you do. You wouldn't want to attract undesirable attention.

If your plain coat/jacket covers up your ID etc, then why not.

It did used to be 8 weeks - the actual POELT course as well as the week before and the week after the course being in establishment. I read it somewhere...Can't for the life of me remember where lol! It's only changed as recent as within the last few years though πŸ‘

You do one week at your establishment first, then 10 weeks of POELT, then back at your establishment for another week before going live.

POELT length.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I though POELT was 1 week at establishment then 8 weeks training then 1 week back at establishment before joining your shift.

My contract which still has lots of errors states it's 10 weeks at training centre.

Can anyone confirm this?

Poelt start and finish times are a dream compared to rota detail !!!
If you cant manage a 10am start on a Monday with a 12 midday finish Friday with one ED thrown in per week then bye bye.
Always always ALWAYS be 10 mins early... etc. etc. etc.
:slag: This entire post is one of the best pieces of advice you will find on these forums. :slcl:

Always always ALWAYS be 10 mins early.
The importance of this is you cannot unlock a wing without the correct amount of staff.
If your late someone has to be pulled from elsewhere in the jail to cover your job.
Staff will get pissed off
Senior staff will get to know your name quickly
Governors too. Your a burden and other staff are picking up your slack. You cost money that can be better spent elsewhere.
Your colleagues will eventually resent you, your working day will be not very nice as people all not want to work with you.
If you cant be relied on to get somewhere on time how can you be relied on to assist a colleague that is fighting a prisoner who has a shank?
Not only that think of the member of staff that has just worked a 8.30 to 2100 A shift... I'm sure they would like a 15-20 min dart, I'm sure you would appreciate it

Poelt is the best time of your career, make the most of it.. Have fun but have those professional boundaries.

Make your name known by being reliable, knowledgeable and professional. Staff will respect you and the day will be full of laughter.
Go the other way and you will eventually be alienated.

Now I know sometimes people are late, car trouble, other factors but ring up and let them know as early as possible. Make it the exception rather Than the rule.

I've been late twice in 15 years. Once when my car had a blow out... AA fixed it and once when I was rear ended on way to work.

Late 5 times! what an absolute waste of an opportunity tbh though when you have wife/girlfriend etc and kids you give up the right to be lazy or late for your job

Definitely Daniel, not like it's even long days really, pretty average hours and no justification for being late more than once or twice for the entire 10 weeks I'd say!. Maybe some clown who thought it a 10 week party or something or some serious lack of self discipline and timing!.
