HMYOI Feltham

Post by FlyingGirl2020 » Sun Jan 10, 2021 4:23 pm

Hi Everyone.

I was wondering if anyone can give me a brief insight into Feltham...

E.g. How long were you on the waitlist for before being offered a conditional place?
How do you find working there?
Anything else worth knowing!

The reason I ask is because at both my ARC and fitness when I was asked where I'd applied for, I would always get a negative response when I said Feltham. Of course, I am very much aware that everyone has different experiences and views!

I can't seem to find much on this site about Feltham life so I thought it would be worth an ask!

Thanks very much :)

Hey

I was in the same position as you. Really, really wanted to work there as a youth justice worker as I thought the role looked great but I started doing digging and in the 2019/2020 reports Feltham is marked as 1 / of serious concern. It could be different now. YOI also are notoriously violent so that could be another reason you’re getting those type of responses.

Sorry I can’t help first hand just thought it was worth letting you know that.
