Hi, just wanted to say hello, have applied for several prisons in the area, got booked for arc in Manchester in December. After recent application to different prison I have been offered arc appointment at Birmingham which is much nearer....... is it right I can just do one for all applications? If so may cancel Manchester???
Yeah I was in a similar position. Applied for somewhere nearby and only got offered a place near London to do my ARC. Then applied for another nearby and got offered Manchester. I did double check but they just said go to Manchester as it's so much closer and if I pass, they will mirror the results over
Stupid question alert!!! What should I wear for my arc? Normally for interview I would be pretty much suited and booted.... but with so much other stuff going on really not sure?? I'm really not a barbie! 😱
I wore smart jeans and a plain polo shirt to mine. Majorty of people at my assessment wore similar. We did have one or two who came suited and booted, but they hadn't seen the 'smart casual' description in the emails.
I'm so sorry! I just realised you don't have access yet to the other boards where I posted! I decided to go a week earlier as they had a cancellation and the waiting was killing me 🙈 I passed 💪🏼
The only "issue" I had was identification. I'd intended to print my p60 off as my 3rd piece of I.D. I got to work the night before and realised I didn't have access to it as our work changed to new systems 🙄 I received an email yesterday saying they are booking me in to the nearest prison to take another form of I.D. so hopefully it hasn't slowed me down too much.
