Dartsrob - Yeah I'll be staying on this when I start, anything to help out each other which is what's it's all about.

The one thing I'm struggling with is checking my email and my application portal 50 times a day!

Dartsrob - The worst is when I'm in work and i can't check!

Has anyone received phone calls or emails on weekends?

Omg the email and application checking!

I probably check everything more than I check my social media atm

I managed to register, but you have to wait for someone to accept your post! Easier being a guest

Speaking of application checking...

I just checked mine and it now says:

We shall be in contact with you shortly to let you know the next stage of the recruitment process.

Anyone had this yet and what was their next stage? I’m currently going through vetting

The next stage is the call. Always seems to come on an evening and wouldn’t rule out the weekend though never heard it come at a weekend

Dartsrob - where are you at in your process?? Sorry if you’ve already said?
Feel very fortunate that I’m only 3 months in to my application process, and only 3-4 weeks now into vetting!

BarkingMad - That's what we like to see mate! We still have a wait on our hands but it's still progress.

Plantpot - yeah I’ve seen people who have waited 6 weeks post vetting to get the call

The unknown waiting is the worse

BarkingMad - Yeah it's a struggle but we will get there!

Does anyone have any up to date information on Poelt training centres? Has anyone started their training? Where did you go?

Plantpot - ooo yeah that’s a good point on POELT training!
I’m more intrigued how they do all the self defence training/ force stuff with Covid, obviously you can’t social distance for that

As bearguy says put as little personal details on here as possible. Remember it’s not just prison officers that come on here. Be discreet on social media. Clearance such as CTC shouldn’t be published either. Just a heads up and all things you will be made aware of in the future.

I hope you enjoy it when you start. There is so much to take in. Good luck
