A busy week. Shadowing on the wings, corridors and interacting with prisoners and generally getting my face about. Asking plenty of questions and trying to learn the basic routine of the prison. By the end of training I think I would of forgot everything from the past week. Sounds like a good week however did have a few moments where staff clearly did not want us around nor did they want to talk to us. A pretty dis organised week aswell, didn't do half the things we were supposed to and was stuck on the one wing all week. Alot of waiting in rooms for someone to talk to us. All in all a good week however plenty of waiting around and some unhelpful staff. Got told the POELT course is irrelevant and will not come in use when I actually go live. C&R will be the only important things. They teach us by the book but when put into practice we will get taught differently. Never the less I'll learn by the book :slwin:

I did enjoy it Sidabal just expected it to be more organised, seeing how they have had months to organise. Got to ask loads of questions and did get a tour of different wings and sections of the prison- very briefly. Hopefully Newbold will be more organised lol

I won't ask exactly where, but what area are you AK11? Be good to get the head's up, if it's where I'm going.

I am in the east midlands area Krypt. As I said very unorganized but majority of staff very friendly and helpful and got a good insight of the prison itself. Wish I had been shadowing different posts though, ie, workshops, visits and more on the movements.

As many have said- it's what you make of it. So staying positive should steer me in the right direction. Will definitely keep everyone posted. Look forward to 'death by PowerPoint' for the first couple of weeks :slwh: see most of you tomorrow, never know some of us might be in the same sections
