it took me few days to get around it , who is who , where is where and trust me still got a long way to learn, but everyday I feel like I,m a part now. . If you heading to Newbolt you will enjoy it , they have excellent trainers and being on site helps . talking about traveling .

Yeah, I'm the same, loved the first week and not enjoying my days off as itching to get back. Can't really mention any real negatives about the job besides not being assigned to any single person to shadow as my wing simply doesn't have any real permanent\regular staff I'm thinking. Told I'm the first person assigned to my wing as regular staff in a while.

Crimes asides, even the prisoners are OK for the best part and even asked by 1 prisoner about a friendly staff\prisoner pool game tournament at some point after being spotted by 1 prisoner testing the pool table out as an inspection I made on a personal level, time will tell as not being tested or taken in by people I don't know. However reports of a potting on another wing this week kind of balances things out. Colleagues are great and friendly, always willing to offer thoughts and advice etc. Still can't find any staff negativity about the job at all. Also assigned my first key worker people this week to, but told by fellow officers not to introduce myself to them yet until I go live after week 2 shadowing as they won't leave me alone in all probability as I can't deal with them as key worker as such until live anyway as I have to complete shadowing and familiarise myself with certain systems and processes. But will introduce myself to each of them at some point next week if on my last shadowing day out of politeness.

Apart from that, slightly struggling to get my barrings when asked to go to certain areas or wing locations etc. But getting there and sure it won't take to much longer.

Wow, this must have been one of the most epic POELT threads ever, makes me wander if any of this intake is still about?. Can't believe it was over 13 months ago!!!.

Nice to hear of the occasional returnee. I myself have no excuse, circumstances took over me, my life and my job and kind of forgot about the very place that gave me so much support . But still in the job and still enjoying it for the best part. And despite the statistics most of my establishments intake is still here!.
