Good evening people, just a quick question.
I know during POELT they have a Christmas break but what I'm wandering is, do they have an Easter break during POELT?

I have wondered the same thing. I've been given 2nd April as my week 2 start date and that's Easter Monday so I'm assuming it runs over Easter still

I'm kinda hoping it does run and no holiday as the week from the 2nd is my final week of POELT. Having time off in the last two weeks could be a pain.

I start my establishment on 2nd April!! With it being a 24/7 job I assume it’ll be normal hours for me. Unsure about POELT though

As it is a bank holiday it will simply be given at at a later date or at least that's how my previous job with the government have worked it so would imagine the same for you in training.
It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity

Start of vetting to the call 17 weeks 2 days.

Nope. Bank holidays are treated no different than any other day in the prison service. We get our 8 days bank holidays in our holidays, so you will be in good friday and easter monday your course will not stoo.

In the actual job are your bank holidays chosen for you with in your dota? Don’t suppose it’s too fair if someone was to take them all Christmas and new year really.

I believe the bank holidays are added to your annual leave allowance so you just book off the time you want and hope it gets authorised. I have read on here that annual leave over Xmas and new year works differently depending on establishment. In my current job I have Xmas off and work new year but I am not expecting that this year (to the point my wife has already arranged to go with the kids to her parents for Christmas this year!)
