Newbold Revel 2020. HMP Stocken.

Post by JonoJP » Tue Nov 05, 2019 6:29 pm

As the title suggests, I've got my start date for HMP Stocken, I'll be doing my 10 weeks at Newbold Revel and I cannot wait.

I'm currently a PCO at HMP Peterborough 1 year and 1 months so far. (Ran by Sodexo, to say I'm glad to be going to the public sector is an understatement.

I'd like to know everyone's opinions on Private establishments (Constructive conversation only, preferably from those who've actually worked in a private nick).

Also, who else will be at Newbold next year for Stocken?

I’ll be starting at NR on 3/2/20, I’m on the apprenticeship thing though so not sure if it’s all in with POELT and then splits off differently afterwards. Seems like the apprenticeship scheme has you doing other workbook stuff all year when in your home establishment which I don’t fancy the sounds of :slno:

I was in the first apprenticeship cohort at my prison + let me tell you.. it is the biggest load of BS.

If you haven’t passed maths + English at GSCE Grade C or equivalent, you’ll be made to sit and pass it. Then you have to do a 1500 essay and a “professional” discussion.. trust me it’s a waste of time because it’s nothing like the real thing.

Doesn’t sound too good Jono, I agree that there should be qualification related rewards in regards training to be a prison officer, but shouldn’t have to jump through a million hoops to get it !

Oh no, from what I’ve read it’s not looking great. I wanted to do my POELT and get on with it. Don’t want to be wasting my free time writing essays and doing ridiculous paperwork for the sake of it. I passed my maths and English with high grades but in 1987 so I’ll have to redo them according to the emails I’ve had regarding starting :slaN:
