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.

Out of interest, how long is POELT there?
It took 22 weeks from conditional offer to getting “the call”

This is what they sent me

Week 1 – Induction and observation week

Week 2 through to Week 11 – POELT Course

Week 12 through to Week 13 – Block Annual Leave

Week 14 – 15 Prison Experience at HMP Berwyn

Week 16 – Go Live

Does this indicate I get 2 weeks holiday at end of course

Yes that what it means it will be your choice they can't make you take annual leave if you want to take them at a later date upto you

Isn’t that pre-booked leave for you? I’m not sure whether you have to take that or not.
