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.

Referred for a Decision!!!!

Post by Yehryan » Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:54 am

    Well Ive gone and logged on this morning to find that it has been referred for a decision so hopefully this will be either good news or the dreaded bad news!!!.

    Considering Ive only been in vetting for a month not even that; but looking at people that have applied or started vetting after August alot of people have had decisions on their vetting....

    Fingers crossed

    Depends if your OH and DBS are completed, if not then it's possibly only that your pre employment checks are completed and then it could change to higher vetting or OH outstanding.

    Hopefully it's not though and you move forward to join the POELT carriages.

    Just checked steria and status now shows referred for a decision. I am so excited but nervous at same time. I only begun the process in late October so praying it's not bad news.

    Once the have all your employment history it is referred for a decision and then it may change to pre employment with higher checks or health outstanding or it may be the final stage, unfortunately their is no way of knowing.

    I've had the same status change, and I had my rad back in July. And been in vetting for over 3 months. I hope this could be the final step.

    Well I have just called OH Assist to find I have to have a telephone interview. The earliest appointment is January the 5th :slsad: . Looks like I am going to be on the vetting train for some time yet.
    Glad I called them or I could be waiting much longer for an interview date.

    Yehryan, do you know when your references were contacted, if at all?

    I sent my vetting off after the supposed new HMRC dates checking change but my references have just been emailed out today.
    I was hoping mine would be as quick as yours but no such luck!
    Im guessing you didnt apply for a London prison by any chance?

    Jana - they didnt go to my references but like Elkins said they only go in there are any discrepancies but also they dont do everyones vetting the new way they only do about 80% in the new way and then 20% in the old way (not exact figures) thats what SSCL told me until they start to move everyone new that applys to the new scheme. Thats what i got told by sscl in November

    Hi,
    Don't think I had any discrepancies in my employment history. I do a voluntary job as well. They did ask my voluntary job for a reference. However, I did state on form that I wished to continue my voluntary job if time permits.

    It could be a slight thing you missed or an addresss that was wrong - or simply you fell into the contact reference bucket.

    I had an issue with my vetting after 2 weeks because they needed a document with my ni number on it and i reuploaded it and they carried on with vetting.
