ARC Results

Post by slimshort »

Hi all,

I have been reading this forum since I applied for Prison Officer role.. I would like to thank everyone here for your knowledgable posts that helped me in passing my ARC.

I was informed at the Centre that I was passed, however, it's been 2 days now and I haven't received my results or any email. Is there something I should be worried about? Thanks

:slcl: congrats on passing your ARC. It can take up to week to update on the portal. 2 days is nothing for an update as there’s a lot of radio silence you have to deal with whilst applying for a prison officer so you need to take this on board patience, patience and more bloody patience! So don’t be worried give it time. Their website advises 12 weeks but you can double that in most cases. Myself personally over 6 months from online tests to start date. However vetting seems to be flying people through recently as well, you’ll find a lot of good info on here with what updates mean so delve deep and good luck :slyay:

I had my ARC last week. I was under the impression we would be told on the day if we passed or not but was told we had to wait 5-7 days :sloo:

Vincey nailed it... patience. In this business you need to have patience, dont take anything as facr value. And be prepared to be told different things from different people. You could call SSCL and be told vetting takes 6 weeks. Hang up call again and someone will tell you it takes 10 weeks.

At my ARC I was told at the start we would receive the outcome within 48 hours via email, but at the end of the day got told I had passed it! By the same bloke that said we would be emailed!!

Oh wow you didn’t get told on the day? Did you go on a Friday by any chance? Mine was on a Friday and there were only 4 of us, he told us we could wait for our results or we would be told we would have to wait for an email if we didn’t wait on the day!

I went on Thursday and I was informed at the end of ARC that I passed.. we were 8 in total and 4 passed..

@JCOX4 What happened after you passed ARC? Were you contacted by them in a week time to inform what happens next or you were directly contacted with a conditional offer?

Thanks

At the end of the ARC I got told I had passed, then the next day I received an email with actual result scores. I then called SSCL and got my results mirrored to the other jails in the cluster. I then received a conditional offer a few weeks later

Size and weight don't matter. One of the best officers I worked with looked like your typical "girl next door", short, thin, not much physical presence to her, but I would rather work with her on a landing then some huge guy.

Don't worry yourself about your physical stature, half the fight is with words n how we use them

I understand were you are coming from but I think we should put out that there that on the whole prisoners are quite protective of female officers and its seen as scummy oo assault one

:slbli: PP is always available as the service is so short staffed. Another job ?! Haha you'll be lucky to survive this one.Literally.
Straight away he clocked us for what we were. Small-time wasters with an accidental big deal.
