Day 2 and and so on...

Post by Ricardo » Thu Jan 28, 2010 3:01 pm

Hi, i've bee following the threads of everyone in the box waiting for their names to be called out. i.e start dates and training dates.

So i applied to the MET in March 09, day 1 was in November 09 and finished day 2 on 13th Jan 10. now im just waiting for a start date for training providing i pass security and referencing :)
Seems im now in the same boat as many, i don't want to be waiting over a year like some of you. Im keen i want to start right now!


On a side note...anyone else had their day 2 this year?

Good News :slsm:
Spoke to Hendon HR today they told me I had cleared S&V :slsm:
They could not confirm but the next Hendon intake could be in June?
Budget dependent and who wins the election ( Politicians :slsic: ) me thinks.
I don't know if I am on this intake, so it's the waiting game for me.
Meanwhile could start bulling my boots :slroll:

On this I wouldn't hold your breath!

The very very very last thing the Met do is the reference, just before they offer start dates!

There are still intakes scheduled every 5 weeks or so at the moment, but it all depends on what happens with PC intakes which are all up in the air except for May & June start dates.

Well, i gave them the call today anyway.
As confirmed, they have an intake in June but cant confirm if i'm on it.

Just a question though, If i rang them up and told them i'd be happy to be posted to other areas too aswell as the ones ive put on my prefer list, the process would be quicker?

Honestly I doubt it.

Basically the Met is full of PCs and PCSOs.

It takes a PC leaving and a current PCSO getting a training date for PC to create the vacancy for those awaiting training dates for PCSO.

There are loads of PCSOs waiting to start as a PC and they are all over the Met! Don't think it will make much of a difference what your borough choices are!
