Sorry to jump on the post. I still have no idea how to start my own topic, haha! Proper novice.

I was wondering if anyone is starting their POELT at Oakham on the 21st June?

Again apologies for jumping on the post.

Cheers 👌🏼

Hi,
go to the bottom of this page and under similar topics it will say return to 'ask a prison officer', press that and it will take you to the main page. And just above topics and under your profile information you will have an icon 'new topic'. Hope that helps.
Create your own topic and hopefully you find someone doing POELT with you

Yeah please do C4l27 because I live 10 mins away from Oakham and I'm interested in where I'll be starting my training. All I have so far is the fitness in Rugby in a couple of weeks.

I've confirmed my contract 😊. I'm on the apprenticeship programme who else is at Nottingham hmp for training on the 14th June? Be good to see who else there 😊

Hi Labgurl,

I hope you don’t mind me asking.. have they said what the other is for the apprenticeship training? And also do you stay on that pay for the full length of the apprenticeship or not?

I have passed the medical and my portal says we shall contact you soon.

Thanks

So at my establishment you start on the 37 hour contract this will be what you are paid throughout your training

For us - may differ in other places- they aren’t allowing us to request to increase hours until after training. Although everyone has said to wait a few months to make sure you enjoy it before signing up for 41 hours, but it’s down to personal preference

You will not be able to move to a 39 or 41 hour contract until you go live. However, if that is your intention, let your poelt mentor know beforehand.

[mrow][/mrow]Hi everyone!

Abit late to the party, im also officially starting on the 14th of June. I do 2 weeks induction at my home prison, then I go to HMP belmarsh for the 8 weeks foundation training. Anyone else going to HMP belmarsh?

I also don't have a grade C in maths, when do you sit your functional skills tests? I haven't heard anything since receiving my contract, and training information

I have also been enrolled onto the custodial care national vocational diploma Programme? Is this the apprenticeship?

I have seen in previous posts that the apprenticeship has been suspended in the South untill autum/winter this year ?

Hi

Ohhh okay I see, I didn't know there was two difference courses ? I thought I was doing the apprenticeship? It's all abit confusing. I'm sure I'll find out more in my 2 weeks induction.

Thank you
