Re: Vetting frustration kicking in!

Someone on my POELT course who had already passed vetting got pulled off the course on the 2nd day and had to return home straight away with no reason given by SS, they was told to wait for a letter. Had something to do with the approvals and compliance team

Re: Vetting completed when do I get the call

Same for me Peagreen. Didn't hear anything from vetting team just verbal offers then the email with details about establishment and where and when I'm doing POELT. Still awaiting contract though, got "the call" last Thursday

Re: POELT starting on a bank hol

I did think about it for a minute and couldn't come to a conclusion so hence the post. Yes i know the prison service runs 24/7 365 but not necessarily the training facilities do. A simple yes you'll be in on the Easter Monday would off been sufficient.

POELT starting on a bank hol

So I'm due to start my role at my establishment on the 10th April. The first Monday I'm due at POELT is Easter Monday. Now i know we work all and any days we are rota'd, i do so in my current job so doesn't affect me, but do the staff at POELT work bank holidays or will training start on the Tuesday?

Re: Boxing and UFC this weekend

Khabib is a top athlete but for me he isn't reliable enough. Just been watching the Selby fight, didn't catch it after rd 6 but the boy is a real tallent. Remember seeing him years ago and he looked good then. Anyone need a link for the fight PM me
