literally I am losing the will to live...everyday I tell myself to not worry, just let it progress, but then my brain goes.

My portal changed not long ago, then I got an email asking for more information a dismissal, I declared this on my application as I thought it was best to be honest. The place I was dismissed from actually settled with me for unfair dismissal before it went to court....I have sent every bit of info over I had.

I am terrified, super anxious and at my wits end about this....also really angry that this could have cost me a career I really wanted.

Just wanted to vent more than anything, as the stress is killing me slowly here!!

If any one knows anything regarding a dismissal being declared and how it might affect the application, please let me know.

I think mental I have just accepted that this might not happen for me now, but I was the most looking forward to a new career.... :slbli:

Oreo123, I can totally see why you would be so anxious about this, but I’m convinced it won’t affect anything for you! You were unfairly dismissed and you have evidence to show this was settled. I’m sure them checking into it is just a formality. I know it’s easier said than done but please try not to worry x

Oreo123 if it helps in anyway I passed vetting with 1 caution , 1 CCJ and 1 dismissal I was terrified I wouldn’t pass vetting with all 3 but I did, I declared it all and also responded to emails for more info regarding my dismissal and CCJ , I think it’s protocol for them to ask for more info try not to stress and let past things hinder your progress… I wish you all the best x

Hi guys, I have been in the vetting stage now for 5 weeks and have just received an "invitation to interview" email saying that I have been invited to a video interview via skype to become a prison officer and discuss a start date.
Has anyone else had this and is it an actual interview like at the ARC with similar questions, for example, "Tell me a time when you had to make an effective decision under pressure?" or is it just to discuss the start date? Thanks!

Just to discuss the start date mate. Did you get an email? In mine it actually said "this is not an interview, this is a call to discuss the start date"
