I passed the online tests!! Now I have a invitation to a first round interview?

What does this entail as I wasn’t expecting this?

It only lasts 2 hours though? I believe this is just a show around prison but the online status says interview.

Only one way to find out I guess! 😁

I believe that this will be the familiarisation visit with it stating "interview" even though there is no formal interview in the process for some reason they call this one an interview. It I'll be basicly a tour of the prison and a chance to meet your POELT mentor and chat to serving officers and see if you are still sure that you want to carry on with the process
