I think they are delaying the roll out of the apprenticeship, but i could be wrong with that.

So my training centre is about 1 hr 30 min drive has anyone or does anyone know how they give you the money for travel expenses? I’m going to have to speak with my establishment Monday but it’s around 100 a week fuel cost so I don’t really want to be shedding out the full cost with no help till after the course is finished. X

Got my email on diploma how long before everyone got their times to start at the 2 weeks induction at their prison? I'm still waiting for it and when do I receive my rota?

I had the arrival time for my first day confirmed in the email sent after the call, I also received another email about two weeks before my start date from the establishment confirming the time.

In regards to Rotas I was given what I’ll be working during my two weeks induction on my first day not sure when I will get my live rota yet. This may vary between the establishments though

Lay19 have you been given a quantum ID yet to access computers in the jail? If so you can check your detail (rota) on there, it should be there by now and it'll give training times also.
