How many took a development day and passed?

Post by Ses198 » Tue Sep 12, 2017 7:51 pm

Hello all,

I'm new here, be gentle please.
I'm currently an osg, applied for officers and would be 3rd generation if I passed. Grandad was an officer and mum is an SO.
I had my jsac the other day and got my results today!! I got 60c on showing understanding in role play. All the others I got As and Bs. I got 93% for assertion which I was surprised at.
Anyway, as I said I only got 60c in showing understanding. Which is a fail by 6 marks.
I've been invited to a development day. How many of you on here have been and actually passed? It says 80% success rate after development day. Is it true? I'm not convinced I've got what it takes.
Does the development day actually work? Is it worth while?
I also failed the fitness test by 2 laps!!!. 5.2
I thought I wasn't touching the lines in time so I was getting annoyed with myself but the instructor kept telling me that I was and I was doing fine. But because of this I was slowing down. Otherwise I'd have done it.
Anyhow, I need abit of reassurance.
Lovely to meet you all.

Hi, I believe the development day is very successful and :slcl: the staff are very encouraging. So, yes it's worth going to. You'll pass the fitness next time. By the sound of it, you just need to be steady and pick up the speed as you progress.
Good luck and congratulations on doing so well in the other areas. Also, no pressure on you to follow in the family footsteps, is there? Crikey Hahaha!

Sounds like you need to work on your confidence issues more than your development day, a little self belief and you probably would have smashed it and been on your way to becoming a Prison Officer.

The development day has a high pass mark but that is down to the individual and their attitude to correcting what they failed on.

Good luck on your next attempt, be confident in your abilities and give 100%.
