    Think we're told about that at the induction weekend. I've been told it's the same amount or maybe more than the last one and it ALL needs to be learnt for week 2 exams!!!! I'm trying to get time to concentrate on the online learning we already have.

    How are you feeling about induction? Is anyone going on their own, dad's working and mum will have my kids plus at my age I'm kind of thinking I should be old enough to do it myself lol

    Online learning will reopen after your induction weekend folks, one piece of advice from someone who has just completed week 8 exams learn Classis like your life depends on it all info on there is on exams. Your week 2 exams are also based on what you already have and what will open after your induction so learn it before coming in as once in its constant going, look forward to meeting you, any questions send me a PM :)

    Can a squad consist of only three?? Lol




  • If anyone on here deserves in, it's mop. She's been around here for a long time and has provided advice and support to countless people who are now in their stations. On behalf of the forum, I'd like to thank her for being one of the most helpful people we've ever had on here.

    Well played ma'am. Well played.




  • Agreed Shield, she'll be an asset, I pass out before she starts or I'd be able to laugh at her on show parades =D

    Couldn't agree more! Can't wait to see her walking down corridor in the hotel no doubt grinning like a kid at Xmas




  • Thank you Shield, that really means a lot to me, more than you know :)

    .S. I've big boots to fill according to Sgt, well maybe get coffee next time I see you

    Derob, ask the rest of my squad. I was skipping down the corridor like a kid at Xmas for uniform fitting! I honestly can not wait!!!!




  • Lol we definitely do, catching up at GV didn't count, I wanted a proper coffee! It'll fly in, enjoy last of your time as a civvie!




  • Definitely!!!!! Enjoy it?!? My little muppets are off on holidays for 2 weeks and I'm stressing about wedding cake and getting this on line learning done :(




  • Relax, enjoy Easter, you'll get online done, can't give ya any advise on wedding cake lol

  • I did it mid Jan and medical towards the end of Feb. Got the call the day I started this thread. 2nd week march?




  • From the squad that passed out Friday past only one got a post in Belfast. All the rest were sent way out west.
    Wonder does that mean they do not need more Belfast side of things or of they are over stretched out west




  • We were told well be sent where were needed and it's more than likely West of the bann which I'm happy about lol




  • Oh really. There were quite a few appeals from what I have been told and they were all turned down.
    I wonder how much your family situation/dependants counts on your placement.

    I'm not at that stage yet,but just curious and though the info would be of use to those about to go in.




  • When you first put in the application form you tick a box to say you understand that you can be stationed anywhere in NI. We were heavily reminded that at induction weekend and pretty much told it's a done deal, you go where you're needed

    I'm not at that stage yet,but just curious and though the info would be of use to those about to go in.

    Your situation is taken into account however they have to be exceptional circumstances as to why you need a certain area. Otherwise you are placed based on operational need.




  • Yeah Ano. I wonder statistic wise if many people drop out on the basis of the location they are placed.
    Would have thought there would have been more of a spread to the placements than only one in Belfast area but again it's down to resources in specific areas




  • No one in the squad that passed out on Friday got Belfast. As Mike says its down to need. Any circumstances will be considered. But ultimately if you really want this career you understand you can be placed anywhere. I've heard of people being unhappy at their station but not of quitting. You put a lot of time / effort into getting in. You do 22weeks of work at GV. Last thing anyone wants is that wasted.




  • wonder anyone get posted in Syria. that might be a cause for complaint. lol
