Yoi/STC pay

Post by Second to none » Tue Oct 17, 2017 11:19 am

Hello everyone,
I am just beginning the journey into becoming a prison officer. I have applied for a STC and have my tour at the end of the month. I have looked everywhere for an answer but can’t find one. The question is............. “Why is the pay for working in a YOI/STC higher than in an adult prison? Is it because they can be more violent?

Be a question worth asking on your tour!

I'm not sure if violence is a factor in it, as you won't be trained in restraint the same way as an adult prison and you will not be permitted to carry a baton either.

I can only think that the establishment you are looking at is either a red or amber site. If it is a London prison then it also qualifies for London pay.

Whats the meaning of a Red site? Is it a critical post, or an absolutely dreadful place to work?
