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.
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
a typical day at college is busy but fun as I was a student there, the classrooms could be bigger and more organised and the food should be less money as not all students have a bursary to help them with the most best part of the day is home time
Since my 2 years working at Doncaster College, I saw over 20 members of staff leave due to management. The college is a horrible place to work, as management do not care about YOU, only their figures. You have regular meetings with management in which they give you all negative feedback, and do not praise you about anything. The College do not take bullying seriously either - on a number of occasions members of staff have been bullied by the students, and the college suspends the STAFF. The managers at the College treat you like pieces of meat (if you're a girl). I will never reccomend this place of work to anyone.
