    Lol mop I don't think there's anyone who should go more than you! Hopefully it'll be your time soon enough :-)




  • Sorry my lovely I couldn't resist!!! Fingers crossed for April start ;)




  • Can I ask you guys a question regarding time scales? For you that are intaking in March,when did you do your physicals and medicals?
    Just wondering what the turn around time is between.
    I have my physical the start of next month.

    Many thanks

  • Careful about dates on here ppl




  • An idea for March Intake would have been one large whatsapp group so that we could all share the panic haha.

    A whatsapp group will be started once you commence training. One for the whole course and one for each individual class




  • Does anyone know what way bank holidays/public holidays work while in GV? I'm assuming non existent but then someone pointed out to me trainers or admin staff/canteen staff would be entitled to them?

    You don't work bank holidays during GV but work the following Saturday to make up for the lost day

    Great, thanks for the reply! Making some very vague attempt to think about life outside GV, won't have much planned other than study, training and sleep!




  • I bet there are a few excited persons on here......and rightly so. it's the best job in the world but it doesn't come easy. Be prepared for a lot of hard work, complete exhaustion - particularly in the first 4 weeks (and on that note learn your online material thoroughly before you come in as you won't have a second to look at it once you're in and a fail = an official warning). it's a very tough course and you're fitness levels will need to be good, p.e is tough even for the fittest amongst my class so prep as much as possible. And finally - enjoy it, you will have very tough days but focus on the end result 🙂

  • Hi all! I bet you're looking forward to getting started soon. Here's a few thing to do and bring on your first day:

    Make sure you bring the following to make life better and easier...

    Cotton wool or a jeweller's cloth to bull. I much rather prefer the wool.

    2 boot brushes, one for putting on and one for taking off polish

    An ironing cloth, preferably a net for doing your trousers, soft shell etc. (ebay)

    An old pair of tights or a cheap pair from asda to give your boots a quick buff after polishing. Unreal result.

    An express polish pad for giving your no.2 boots a quick gleam in the morning.

    A good pillow because the one they give you is paper thin.

    Learn as many definitions before you start as possible. Try and get the first 10 done that's down for the week 8 exam as you'll struggle to find time to learn them in the first lot of weeks.




  • Online learning - just had a bit of a panic, do we complete part one, which then launches part 2 for use in GV as it says it takes 22 weeks to complete .... ie we don't need to have part 2 completed prior to going in? (Or am I about to be very busy?! I've completed part 1!)

    Hey there Part 2 is your Garnerville course, just ensure you have foundations and induction sections completed :)
