POELT Residential

Post by kinzku5  »

Does the POELT have to be residential? Could I choose to commute if I wanted to and do they pay expenses/mileage?

Labgurl I’ll jump on here instead of starting another topic, I bet you’re all pissed off with them haha. Unfortunately I don’t have kids yet :( but we do have a horse that needs care both morning and night, say I had to go Newbold for instance that’s 1:30 minutes from me, I couldn’t afford to drive that from 10/13 weeks.

It's fine that's what the forum is for. I think they pay milage as I got emailed a form for doing my fitness test for claiming back mileage so could get paid milage to travel we can't afford for me to go back and fourth as we can't claim benefits as partner earns to much.

Currently most POELT courses are non residential, they are doing at various establishments around the country and will try and keep you as local as possible. If you have to travel you will be entitled to either milage or a hire car talk to your people hub. You can also claim toil for your journey time. Toil = time off in leau and will be the difference between journey time from home to your own establishment and your POELT centre. (Basically if it takes 30 mins home to home prison and 45 mins home to POELT centre you get 15 mins toil each way, which will work out 2.5 hours per week.)

I have been offered residential at Newbold in May thankfully as it’s about 90min journey.

I think it just depends on the establishment

Your prison will have cars, they may let you use it all depends on the need for them. I was told no and use my car, but you are not out of pocket, when you claim you get more back than you spend.

Great that’s what I was worried about as although I have money I don’t want to have to be pulling out travel cost as well
As normal living expenses my home prison is 6 mile away lol! X
