Not good , management were poor and the resource for teaching and students were poor and lacking . No life balance though coffee shop was good . The team in student support were very nice and friendly .
None oh, student card and rail card
Long way hard to park and cold moment and no gym near by other than pure gym off site.
The Academic leadership in the University Centre is incompetent. Staff are routinely timetabled disproportionately and some staff hardly work and others pick up the pieces. Problems with finance mean the college can no longer affordto run courses properly staffed and staff are overstretched and many near breakdowns
Mental Health likely to fail if take job here
I worked in the Performing Arts and Media department as a Program Leader / Lecturer. Doncaster College has an excellent culture in general with a good team spirit. I only left for a better position which cut my travelling time, had higher benefits and salary.
Working at Doncaster College I quickly noticed that the more capable you are, the more your job role/responsibilities increased without an increase in pay/salary. Majority of the staff are unhappy and will openly express this to you in conversation, which explains the high turn over rate at the lower end of the hierarchy. Poor management that is very disorganised and always tend to be last minute without consideration which, creates an overall stressful environment to work in.
while working there on work placement it was very disorganized as many teachers quit randomly and students had to be shifted to new teachers. The technicians werent trained properly and were students themselves some with less knowledge than the students doing their work placement
The day at Doncaster college would be to take learners into class for theory lessons and this lasted around 2 hours then they would be in the workshop for practical classes which involved plastering ,boarding and fibrous work.

So long as you pick the right course for you, it will be very enjoyable. Have an excellent range of courses available so there's something for everybody. Easy access to college via public transport. Nice, friendly staff.
Easy access by public transport
It was the best job ever had in England, but I had to quit as I start having panic and anxiety attacks..i could not do it again I've cryed my eyes out because I have to leave..it was very unfortunate.
Long shifts and long journeys too, but i enjoyed eorking for iss.
I felt tutors were not as helpful as they could have been. I loved the work and enjoyed being part of the college culture. I had the support I needed and in general the staff were very accommodating with my needs. I made long lasting friends and achieved a high standard qualification.
The culture and focus on learning
course not what I expected and tutoring very sloppy
