It'll be just on the roll plays! You've done it before, so just ask the instructor. They'll help you, remember assertion isn't aggression. Make sure you explore reasons for behaviour, stop any rule breaking and anything disrespectful to others!

I failed first time on my role plays. I’m going to assume you done the same ones as myself. I scored low on ‘respecting others’ and I know the scenario was a visitor had no ID but needed to see his nephew who was in trouble. The actor was really good (and scary) and he was shouting and shouting sayin the needed to get in. I shouted back saying he could win no ID :sloo:

The actors will be sexist, racist and homophobic. You need to make sure you pick up on this and tell them it’s against prison policy and you will be reporting it to a superior

Bird7, I had that exact same role play as well. I think the best advice i was given was by my friend who recently passed his POELT and is live now. He told me to be Firm, Fair and respectful.

Helped me pass. Hopefully you will get a resit soon Gazereth. All the best!

Did you checkout all the role-play videos, if not watch them and if you did may be watch them again and again ... I found them very helpful.

Had my RAD today and got my results 2 hours later! I passed!! :slcup: found the role plays quite daunting and thought I’d majorly screwed up, came out thinking about what I should have said and was defo prepared for a fail. Keep calm, ask questions, remember the rules, challenge wrong behaviour and remember to explain why. Stand your ground but don’t be aggressive. Good luck!
