five years ago Benchmarking came in which said prisons could run with a lot less staff, VEDS was born and thousands of highly experienced prison officers were paid off handsomely to leave early.
This gave HMP the prisons with a lot less staff that they wanted and since then? Well since then we have RECORD NUMBERS of brand new prison officers with 0 experience whatever. Far better than the hugely experienced prison officers who were paid handsomely to leave.

Congrats
It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity

Congratulations! They'll tell you your induction week and POELT start dates.

They fist offered me POELT closer to home but would have seen a daily commute 45 mins, asked if I could go residential and they said yes and just happened to fall two weeks earlier!

Good luck!
