You don't need qualifications to apply directly to be a prison officer. Personal qualities are more important.
You'll need to take an online test to check your judgement and your number skills. If you pass, you'll attend an assessment day where you'll:
- take another number test
- take a reading and writing test
- take part in role plays to see if you have the right personal qualities for the job
- take fitness tests
- have a medical and eyesight test
- be interviewed
