  • Lol it will take you a while. Apologies about the essay lol

    I will only accept hello kitty IF it comes with matching curtains. I mean god forbid the colour scheme wouldn't match!!




  • I will only accept hello kitty IF it comes with matching curtains. I mean god forbid the colour scheme wouldn't match!!

    Of course it's got matching curtains!!!! Tie backs too. I'll even throw in a hello kitty ballet dancer teddy and scatter cushions just cos you've been so helpful and I really appreciate it x




  • Depending on what the food's like I could see myself hitting IKEA for some meatballs! Oh and might get a Fireman Sam duvet to show solidarity with our new emergency services comrades haha

    Could you not pretend you're still at Uni and get ur mammy to make us a pot of stew?lol

  • The food at gv is tip top!! No need for meat balls our mammy's stew! :)




  • So who is everyone taking to the induction? I'm bringing my mum to hopefully calm her nerves lol




  • Bringing my dad! He used to be in the army so he would probably find it the most interesting to see all the training we'll get to do :) and then he'll have the important job of calming nerves when he gets home haha have you phoned with car/guest details yet or you just gonna leave it till closer to the time?




  • Yea if I calm mum that will help! No I only got her confirmed today as she may have been working so will call Tuesday to confirm. I assume they are open again Tuesday. I can't wait to meet everyone :)

    I'm still not sure. Can't wait to meet everyone too. Think I might bring a name badge rather than awkwardly asking if someone has a boards name lol

  • If wer all in a group ill just drop the sell 'so who's a boardie'?' lol though at my pca I asked that and none of them where, they all looked a time like I was some computer geek!

    Oh are you not a computer geek!? :p




  • Oh wow! Some of us are still alive!




  • wasn't going to bring anyone along but after reading your posts i'll probably bring my mum along, may as well I suppose, will phone them up tomorrow to give my car reg and confirm names, looking forward to it!




  • Looking forward to it too but I was a bit surprised at first when we got the pack and it said it was over the Saturday and the Sunday, I always thought it used to be just one day only. I think it'll be really exciting to get a proper look round our new digs for a while and all of GV as well!

    Ah you'll recognise me. The really really ridiculously good looking (and modest) one.

    (At least that's what mammy says. And she'd never lie)




  • The second part of online learning doesn't begin for us until after induction weekend, does it?




  • The second part of online learning doesn't begin for us until after induction weekend, does it?

    Nope!




  • Nope!

    Phew, was starting to worry there. Has there been any talk on here of what online learning is like after induction weekend ?




  • Phew, was starting to worry there. Has there been any talk on here of what online learning is like after induction weekend ?

    Seems like it must be pretty intense, the people on the intake 3 thread have said about having to get their heads down and get stuck in. There's probably a lot of definitions and such to learn as well.

    I just wonder will any of it be in book form or is everything going to an online format? Just asking as my laptop is currently busted and I'll have to see about shelling out for a new one or not!

  • Can you lucky people do me a favour and tell me how long it is from the phone call to the induction day please? :) Is it 7 days? Also, do the induction days only take place on certain days?
    Many thanks!

    We're a special case :P haha what I mean is because of the Twelfth I think we're having longer than usual between phone call and induction and phone call and start date. No idea what the usual time scale is but you'll have plenty of notice between call and induction, way more than 7 days anyway. The inductions also seem to always take place over a weekend.




  • I think we got about 2 weeks or so notice for the induction. It's always a weekend, both Saturday and Sunday.

    The second lot of online learning is heavy going that's for sure!

    Heavy going but I bet it's got you raring to go! :) can't wait to get stuck in myself!




  • I'm getting a new laptop too, I t says we need one for gv so I assume we will need it for classes etc but I personally find it easier to go type up notes after a class, well that worked for my a levels many moons ago lol




  • Hi soon to be colleagues..does anyone know if we can use the facilities at New Forge as soon as we start
