POELT Newbold Revel 19th March

Post by Ryan2393 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 9:46 am

Hello guys and gals...

I originally posted this as a meet and greet for people joining me at Newbold Revel on the 19th but i saw a post saying we can disclose stuff like that. Either way if you are on that training date with me id like to hear from you etc through PM.

I do have a question though.

What are we supposed to take with us to training school?
Like the obvious stationary but other than uniform, clothes and stationary what else?

Hi all.

You will need to be wearing full uniform and make sure you take some ID with you.. Passport/Driving Licence/Prison ID will do, as you will be asked for this so keep it with you.

All learning materials are provided for you so don't worry about notebooks etc.

You can wear gym gear during C & R but they will tell you that and inform you in advance of when your sessions are.

You won't be doing it in week 1, but feel free to pack gym wear as they have a gym there for you to use.. they did have some fitness classes on too but I'm not 100% sure they're still running.

But just don't forget your uniform and your ID!! They're the most important things!!

I vaguely remember a lass at newbold saying they are split up into groups of 8-12 and that’s the “unit” so the 8-12 members stick together for the 10 weeks. More than happy to be corrected if I’m wrong.

I think it depends on the number of applicants. One of my friends that's doing POELT at the moment said she has 17 on her class and that there is a lot of classes and stuff to study, specially Phonetic Alphabet :slty: ... not to mention the exams :slvo:

Sounds like we shall have to wait and see ... it is all very exciting.

I was once in a group of 24 and over a two week period we all got to know each other very well, strengths, weaknesses and became a strong team ... POELT is 10 weeks so I am looking forward to this experience, I think it's going to be an amazing experience for us all!

Yeah, can't wait really. Since I moved in to England 5 years ago, all I've been doing is work like a donkey and hardly going out or socialise. Will be nice to change that and meet new people
