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.

Alwatki - I’m also at Kirkham a week on Monday 😊

I’ve been told my uniform will be there on day 1 but I’m just wearing Black Pants, Black Shoes, white shite and Black Tie.

Good Luck in your first week.

As my establishment is a juvinille prison the staff wear the softer uniform so I emailed my training team and asked what they expected me to wear for 1st day of induction, they told me " I am expected to be smartly dressed" the only stipulation they did give was no denim jeans

I’ve got white shirt,black tie, black trousers, a black fleece that matches officers fortunately enough I had 1, and rather than buying black boots or shoes I’ve got pure black Adidas trainers that look similar to shoes/boots anyway because I’ve seen my kit ready for me
