Role Play - Advice, If YOI even better! ARC Monday!

Post by MuayThaiRy »

Hey guys!

ARC Monday!!!

This has probably been asked a million times, but can you lot give me some tips for my role plays? Literally the only part I’m worried about as of course I’ve never had to deal with scenarios like I imagine there going to be. I’m going for a Youth Justice Worker job so if anyone’s done there role play regarding young offenders even better!

Just relax, take your time and be your self... and remember they aren’t looking for you to know exactly what you should do to resolve an issue but more your interaction and communication with the ‘prisoners’

Look at the ARC portal it will tell you the 4 important competencies as long as you know and understand them then you’ll be fine.

No ones going to give you examples of what the role plays entail as well... your not supposed to share any information from your arc

I was a bit worried about my role plays as well mate, honestly it all just came naturally to me once I got going! Try not to let it stress you out and don’t try to guess/plan for it too much. One of the girls at my ARC had planned and prepped so much beforehand but didn’t pass, I imagine it felt too rehearsed. If you have the right basic qualities and responses it’ll be easy!

As someone said, keep calm, also

• Be engaged in the conversation
• Ask questions about their actions/behaviour
• Offer support from yourself and available prison services
• Encourage good behaviour & explain the rewards for doing so
• Stick to the prison rules
• Check that they understand what you have said/offered

That is just my take on things, anyone want to add to that ?

having literally just completed (and passed) it sounds cliché but just be yourself. You either have what they are looking for or not. I wouldn't go in with an pre conceived ideas of what the role play is. As Bear has said, look at the application info, they are looking at you to be able to communicate, make decisions (doesn't matter if they are in line with prison "rules" but most importantly i think, listen. listen to what they are telling you. acknowledge it, think about how YOU can help THEM.
enjoy it, I kind of did!

You get 5 scenarios with YOI. As previous poster has said, be yourself, don’t raise your voice. Try to get to the bottom of the issue about what’s upset them. Dont tolerate any abuse by being firm but fair!
