Its fair to say i am bricking it!!

I have a question though, i am residential but coming up on the Monday morning. What happens when i first get there? Is it leave luggage in the car and just get the first day sorted, then rooms after? How does it all go down?

I’d get there extra early and find out then if you can’t get a reply, good luck though and have fun! Keep the March starters updated if you get chance.

If you don’t mind me asking how long did it take formula to get your invite to the course after you did the online part at first? I’ve just done that and have no idea of the timescale. Thanks

Newton, there is no time scale. You need to do your online stuff first, then your rad, then wait for results for that, then you'll either get merit listed or a conditional offer then the vetting starts which can be anywhere up to 6 months to complete! Welcome to the long wait of prison officer recruitment!!

First week down, who else here is loving it?! Got some nice accommodation and have learnt so much in just 1 week. Roll on the next 9 weeks!

Bird - from what I have seen from some of the female POELTs from my establishment, the sizes come out small. What I could suggest is speaking to your establishment and seeing if you can try some stuff on.
