Nursery Practitioner Level 3 in University nursery
on 21 November 2021
Regimental nursery
To regimental for a nursery, lack of fun in the environment for the children, staff are under to much pressure. Not enough quality time spent with the children indoors

Too hard for a minimum wage job
Work you to the ground with no pay rises ever. Toxic work environment.Mismanagement, unrealistic expectations to get the job done. I didn't have a positive experience. No work life balance and lack of support from management.

Productive and life changing
This University is an excellent place to work for personal development and interesting projects. I was given the chance to work on prospectuses, email campaigns, online content, campaign tag lines, a professional photography studio, all kinds of fascinating projects. My only regret is my own health hampered me from fulfilling the role to the best of my ability. It was a real challenge, and I grew working here.
Senior Lecturer in London

An enjoyable and challenging experience where I learned significantly.
If you have a leader it is challenging because more opportunities are released alleviate pressure. Many new subjects mastered due to undertaken lectures and seminar at short notice, learning valuable transferable skills. A number of lecturers were dismissed at with short notice having worked at the establishment for 4 years. This obviously give lecturing a sense of permanence.
Learning Designer in Coventry City Centre, West Midlands

Stressful and discourages autonomy
Unfortunately, considering many of the roles are creative, autonomy is discouraged, and sometimes even criticised. The culture is very hierarchical; everything must go through your manager first. This wouldn't be such an issue if managers were encouraged to make managerial decisions but, alas, this is not the case. They instead have to go to their managers to request a decision. Essentially, middle management roles have become go-betweens. Work allocation is based on numbers, rather than complexity, capacity and a consideration of project delays. This has become more of an issue due to the impact of covid on education delivery. Each member of the team is working on 3-6 modules (one module = 12-weeks of content) at the same time, each with a 16-week deadline. Needless to say, work stress is no stranger to the team. Staff wellbeing is a priority, as long as it's only regarding working from home stresses, not workload.Despite all the horrors of working at CU Online, colleagues are supportive, friendly, and great to be around. The Managing Director of CU Online is also great. He takes feedback on board and actions it where possible. He has an 'open door' policy, whereby staff are encouraged to talk to him if they have concerns that their managers cannot resolve.Warning: the starting salary is likely to be the bottom of the range. You are unlikely rise above this salary due to the complex PDR process. Most colleagues have remained on the same salary for 3 years.
