Re: First day induction tomorrow

Hey, Enjoy it! I had my first day induction a few weeks ago and I was terrified from the moment I saw the prison fences from my car. Turned out to be an amazing first two weeks and made me so excited to do the job. Just be yourself and carry yourself in a respectful manner is all I would say, hope y...

Re: APTEM learning

Hey There,

Go all the way to the very end where they ask you about your competency In different areas it then will ask you to sign the agreement, if you don’t do it now you can do it at your establishment with your apprentice coach or mentor. Good luck!!

Re: Anybody work in Ops/ or know much about ops

Thanks for the info mate. I was thinking that perhaps it would be a little boring and I joined the service to be involved directly with inmates( not complaining though, just happy to be in the service) is it something you can have a word with my manager about? And I might get on a wing?

Re: Anybody work in Ops/ or know much about ops

Thanks for you reply Manc-Apollo! Have you ever worked in ops? I’m up for getting involved in whatever officer duties they want! was just surprised not to have a wing when others did :slbg: is it an interesting part if the job or is it something you wouldn’t fancy?
Cheers

Anybody work in Ops/ or know much about ops

Hey Everyone,

Seems as though I’m assigned to ops and not a wing. Anybody have any tips or advice or any general info about what an officer in ops will do?

Thanks everyone

Re: Induction - Disappointed

It’s really sad to read that you had such an awful experience, no body deserves to be treated like that at a new place of work , especially when going into something like the prison service! You should definitely talk to someone about how you feel and how you were treated after all this isn’t some p...

Re: Training Leeds 31st may

Hey Chez, I wish I was :( I’m from Yorkshire so would be a nice commute for me, instead I have a longish daily commute. Do you have a long drive to Leeds?

Also, how long did it take you to receive your contract? I’ve had a few emails but not the contract yet

Have a good day!
