Unsuccessful application

Post by frejachristox »

Hi guys!

I recently passed my V-ARC and was put on a merit list. Since then, I’ve tried to apply for closer prisons, but it’s telling me that I can’t as I’ve had an unsuccessful application within the last six months (which isn’t the case). Has anybody else experienced this?

Thanks! :slbg:

Brill, thanks. Did you have to re do your assessment centre as it’s asking me to complete the online situational test.

You can ask SSCL to transfer your successful result over to other establishments

You won’t need to do the assessments again

Even if you apply with a different email address it sometimes recognises you have a pending application, I’m not sure how. Anyway you’ve passed the VRC, so not point doing it again!
You have to call SSCL who will mirror over your results. It can take a week to do, but that’s how I did it. I then got an email saying sorry you’ve withdrawn your application about three weeks later...only to find out that I’d been offered a place at the new prison I asked for !

You have to call SSCL and tell them you want to be on the merit list for other prisons, providing they’re recruiting. This is after passing the VRC. I’m not sure you can change your mind after applying, without doing the VRC first.
