  2. Anyone starting Tulliallan in October???

    Well less than 2 weeks to go and we'll all be at Tulli!!! Still Excited and Nervous at the thought, but i suppose thats usual!! I thought i was going to miss the first day at nelson street on the 19th as i had a citation to appear at court as a witness for the procecution, due to my previous job!!! But have received the letter saying the trial has been put off...AGAIN!!! But im glad i wont miss my first day. Got all my kit list now...and the bank balance shows it!!!! LOL. Can anyone advise if we need to bring writing pads etc? Also is there a bank machine on the grounds or is it best just to take money with you?? When is pay day? Places i have worked before have pay day on the 25th of the month or the 28th. Even the last friday of the month? I know us newbie wont have a full pay by end of october as we will only have started on the 19th. But it would be useful to know? If someone could advise tha would be great. How is everyone else feeling? Anyone else starting at Nelson Street on the 19th? Looking forward to seeing our uniforms!! Is it true we get PE on the monday we arrive at Tulli? And how many times a week do we get PE? I see by the timetale we got for nelson street we have PE twice next week. Looking foward to that!! Roll on Monday!!

    Yeah it did feel great receiving my contract...mind you got a phone call last thursday asking me how I was getting on with my contract and when I would be sending it back?? I was like I posted it on the 18th September...the day after I received it. Due to the postal strike it hadn't been received at recruitment. And mines wasn't the only one. Apparently 4 people never even received theirs!!! So one thing I will say, if you have to send things to recruitment. Then hand deliver them to Woodhill House. Stace

    Hiya, After your fitness you will be told if you have passed your fitness...which you should. It's not as bad a people think. Then there is an application review, which basically is when the recruiters and senior officers get together and talk about how each applicant has done throughout the process....dont worry bout this its just procedure. Although on the day of my fitness the recruitment officer said people have got to this part and failed. Scary i know, but dont worry. I had my fitness on 2/9/09 and got the phone call on 9/9/9....(how weird) So within a week of you doing your fitness you should know!! Yeah we got told that new recrts would hav to wait until Jan as they have cut the november intake. Good luck, let me know how you get on and if you need anymore info/advise just let me know. Hopefully see you at Tulli in January.

    OMG, not long to go!!! Still trying to find plain black shorts??? Anyone joining Grampian know of any shops in aberdeen that have plain black shorts for females? I have seen black shorts for fitness, but theyeither have white stripes down the sides or a logo at the bottom of the shorts. Can't wait to see everyone at Nelson Street on the 19th, and even more excited to see everyone at Tulliallan on the 26th!!! Anymore advise on what will be happening on the 26th for when us newbies arrive?? Stace

  8. Anyone starting Tulliallan in October???

    They are now!!! Lol :). Can't wait. I'm going out to get the rest of my kit list this weekend!!! I bought a pair of Magnums to wear to class and Shoes for Parade/Inspection. Is that what everyone has done?? Some people have said that i should buy two pairs of Shoes and wear one for Class and one for Parade?? But thought Magnum Boots would be just as good for Class. Looking forward to the 19th, and getting to Nelson Street. Think by the 25th i will be vomitting with nerves for the monday morning!! :)

And hopeully i will be seeing somoyou at Tully in october!!! Stace x
  11. Strathclyde initial

    Hiya I had my initial for Grampian on the 15th Nov. Don't know if it was any different from Strathclyde, but I felt the same as you :smiley_vomit: ...kept thinking i hadn't passed. I kept thinking "maybe i should have said this, instead of this". But got the call on monday and got told that i did very well at the initial and that i was invited to the A/C on the 3rd December. Don't worry i bet you've done fine. The thing about interviews are that there ain't no right or wrong answers. But if you prepare for the interview then everything should be fine. My advice to anyone going about to do the initial interview would be to research all you can about the force your applying too and the role. Let us know how you get on!!
  12. Scottish Pass Papers

    I bought these papaers too and i found that the answers in the book were wrong too!!! Sat my S.E.T on the 9th of October for Grampian Police and got my results last night :smiley_vomit: ...and i PASSED!!!! I'm so happy. One Stage down and only a few left to go!! The S.E.T's weren't as bad as i thought they would be. :whistle2: Initial Interview is next, as long as the checks come back ok Stace x
