You should get an email from someone at your establishment with a uniform request, which you complete and email back 👍🏻

I passed vetting the same day as you, I’m still awaiting the call, cannot wait, anyway I can chase up? Who can I call or is it just a case of waiting?

Thanks! not sure what is happening with the training either. The lady I spoke to on the phone doesn’t know if I’ll be on the new scheme or POELT. I have to go to the prison on day 1 and think I will have to start doing operational support.

Hey, I passed getting a while ago also. I’m understanding of the current situation of course. But I noticed my prison job portal changed to say “we are delighted to have made a verbal offer to you” or something to that effect. I called them as if had no communication. They told me someone will be in touch soon to discuss my start date. And that’s that, a very patient process indeed

I had a call just now offering me an early start date doing an osg role, starting 1st June. Had to turn it down due to personal circumstances at the moment but it would appear they are still giving out start dates!

Technically I have no start date as Ive asked to start as late as possible due to the covid saga. My portal is back to the "we will be in touch" message.

Hopefully you’ll get another start date soon JCOX. When I first joined ten years ago, I was offered a start date but I already had a holiday booked to Florida ! They were fine about it and I was offered another date three months later.
