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.

POELT Locations SE

Post by PaulP » Thu Dec 07, 2017 8:23 am

Good morning,

I'm new here, I'm into my 3rd week of vetting and my steria status currently is 'Your application is currently going through pre-employment checks with either higher level checks and/or Health outstanding' so I feel like I'm slowly getting there but I can't wait for the vetting to be over and then my unhealthy obsession with checking my phone for emails or a status change will hopefully go away!

This is a great forum, I've read some really interesting and helpful stuff. I just wondered if there is a list of locations of POELT sites in Kent/South East? I can't find one anywhere (on this site or elsewhere). I'm just thinking forward....

Have a good day

Thank you

No problem, thanks for replying. I just wanted to get an idea of how far I might have to travel.

Interesting - Chelmsford could work for me if need be but I'd quite like to avoid having to use the dreaded M25 (I'm in Kent). I've got a feeling that's going to be inevitable if & when my POELT time comes... Thank you

Medway is indeed Kent - this is the first I've seen or heard of a Medway POELT site - that would be amazing if so! Thanks

Ha ha, don't worry. I know what you meant although it is far too easy to get the wrong end of a text. It's all good. Let's just hope I get to the POELT stage and I don't have to wait too long for a place when I do

Congrats! I'll follow your progress with interest. I was hoping for a start sometime in Jan but that's looking more & more unlikely. I'll be happy to get there anytime though....
