Got my call!

Post by PlantPot »

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know that I got my call today and I start on March the 8th, I'm so excited and can't wait to get stuck in!

Now I have the task of handing in my notice, that won't be a fun task!

What region are you?

will probably feel like the longest month to wait but I’m sure it’ll all be worth it!

How long did you wait in the end??

I got a call this evening and my heart started racing when I heard it go off and it was my friend calling me😂 I was like “sorry can’t talk now, I need to calm down”

The whole of my vetting took 4 1/2 weeks. Probably a week after my portal changed.

Oooo okay! I’m hoping I am as lucky as you

Have you found out where you’re training? Is it at your prison or elsewhere? I’m assuming mine will be at Newbold

I got my call on monday and start at my establishment on the 15th of march and then training at newbold 2 weeks later, I first did the online test in mid October 2020 so it has been fairly quick for me! Congratulations on getting your start date buddy!

Did you get an email when your portal changed or did you just happen to see it when you logged on?
