Manchester RAD 18th May- Any replies?

Post by charlottejobling » Thu May 21, 2015 4:26 pm

Hi,

Had my RAD in Manchester on Monday and the suspense of my results is killing me! Has anyone who attended this or attended any RADS recently heard back yet, if so how long did it take?

Thanks,

Charlotte

oh, long story, there are many threads on here about my route, but I failed 2 RAD's then got invited to a development day and failed that, then finally passed at Grendon getting my results on the 7th of May.

At least you got there in the end, that's all that matters!!

What was the development day like? I've got a feeling I may end up on one of those, didn't feel like the roleplays went as well as they could have! :sloo:

I did my RAD twice in Manchester. Results after a week. And emails came around 9am. Think positive.

Lets hope you have passed your RAD, but for info purposes the Development day is generally at Newbold and is much more relaxed than the RAD. It starts at 09.30 and you spend the morning talking about ALL the areas that need to be covered within the role plays, then learn more about the area you failed on. Then in the afternoon you do just 1 x 10 minute role play and then you can go. The only advice I would give is [bearing in mind you will have only failed on one section] not to forget the other areas that you passed previously. I came out of the role play thinking [rightly it turned out] that I had concentrated too much on the failed area and not covered the others enough. Hope that helps, but hopefully you won't need a development day :slbg:

Charlotte, I rang ss today and was told that I've been passed to the final checks team and will receive an email and then the call I'm currently 8 weeks since rad its been a long 8 weeks I can tell you. Just keep pestering them and they seem to get things moving.

Floyd, have you heard anything back yet since sending your pack to ss?

Gary

My paperwork is yet to reach vetting/ss, i took it to HMP Winchester on the 13th of May, and after 3 emails from vetting themselves asking where it was, I have today eventually got hold of the lady at Winchester who I saw and she says she sent it on Monday 18th and will chase it up to see where it is. So I will wait until tomorrow and give ss a ring to see what has happened.
