Hi there
I've got my assessment day on 26th of september and have 3 practical group working exercises (incuding prisoner contact and role plays)...
I know I'd be having the fitness test and the role play but what is the prisoner contcat about?
Thanks

Is it for a public or private run establishment?

You will NOT have prisoner contact.
The prisoners are actors and are part of the role play tests.
You will quickly forget they are actors tho!!!

Hi there
It's a private run establishment at parc prison brigend
I had an email saying:-
The day will start with a fitness test. this is essential element, which MUST BE passed to be able to proceed with the rest of assessments centre.
if you are successful following the fitness test, you will conitnue to carry out, 3 practical group working exercises (including prisoner contact and role plays)

Good luck James.

I really enjoyed the role play.. in fact the whole day was enjoyable and made me want the job even more.

The first role play I was nervous but after a few minute, you forget they are actors and go with the flow.

Just be yourself as this is what your judged on.

Spare set of clothes for fitness.
Personally I treated it as an interview. Shirt, tie etc. Impressions count.
