You don't need it for everyday, on mine we only did C and R once a week but at Newbold I think it was twice a week :slbg:

Under your overalls, yes.

You're not expected to wander around in shorts and you certainly can't wear them to meals etc.

Vests are the same.

Firstly - this thread is so helpful so thank you!
Secondly - I start at my establishment on Monday (Werrington YOI) and just have a question about the POELT as I start at Newbold the 22nd May. Is the POELT for YOI same as an adult prison? Are people on the courses mixed in any of your experiences? Soooo nervous to start the closet it's getting but so excited too!
Also I know the uniform for YOI is a little different to an adult prison but should I still wear the same on the first day as you've described here?

Same POELT course for all... variances with adult males, females, young offenders and juveniles will all be discussed. POELT is foundation training and therefore covers the basics to get you going.

Juvenile establishment staff don't do C&R though. They do MMPR which is a different system for dealing with refractory offenders.

I'm assuming the POELT's are usually residential?

Is there any sort of policy on being clean shaven? Or would you generally advise it?

A question was asked about shaving and what defines stubble/beard. Here's my take on it:

For you City dwellers, the countryside has things called wheat fields. When these are cut down, what's left is 'stubble'. If you were to touch it, it feels prickly, bristly and sharp.

The same transfers to facial hair... stubble feels prickly, bristly and sharp. In my view, it's scruffy and detracts from a professional look.

Beards however, feel like... er... hair! They are soft and not prickly. This is acceptable providing they are not out of control. Keep in mind that a nice long, bushy beard makes a great handle for taking control of your head.

The comment about the instructors not pulling anyone for not shaving is, sadly, a reflection on the instructors standards and the sub-standards that are starting to become acceptable. It's a slippery slope. Take responsibility and pride for yourself if no-one else bothers.

POELT's are usually residential depending on your travel time - mind you, there's always an exception
