East Durham college was not for me , this is why I’m wanting a job instead. I didn’t like the students as I’m outgoing and funny and everyone else was always miserable and I’d rather be around outgoing people like myself

I enjoyed being a student teacher here, its the college I have always been part of ever since I left school in 2013. Provided me with a friendly, safe environment to work in and develop my teaching skills. The students were excellent with me and always provided top quality pieces. The staff were also very helpful looking after me and helping me learn things along the way.

Their is some amazing opportunities to meet some animals you may never have thought u would have met, so many different animals and you get the chance to work with them all. Most of the animals you are able to handle and they are well behaved as long as you know what you are doing and confident obviously their is risks but if you are confident in what it is you are doing ,handle correctly and try and ensure the animal it can trust you your probably safe. You learn some amazing things and staff are really good too.
Pros
Lunch, drinks
Cons
Long hours

A typical day at East Durham, is filled with work and many tasks. I learned plenty of new things which I had never even heard of before, which could also help in the near coming future.

For east Durham college I never really worked with the customers as I was always in the kitchens but the environment was good because we all would communicate with eachother and the job was an easy one. The hardest part was learning to make a new recipe for a new dish but you would learn eventually. The management was good because they would talk us through our role and they would give us any help we would require.
Pros
Good hours
Cons
Difficult

I enjoyed scripting a radio advert which allowed me to be creative and get involved in a media platform I have never had any experience in before. It also allowed me to meet new people and become more of a thinking media worker.

Some days it was busy some times it was really quiet. I learned a lot while I was there I learned to ale loads of dishes I've never made before . Management was good . I got on well with my co- workers. The hardest part of the job was when there wasn't many people in and it was busy . The most enjoyable part of the job was having a good place to work in .
Pros
Sometimes got free food
Cons
When it was busy and there was only 1-4 people in .

I found it very helpful and I enjoyed the hands on experience during my time at East Durham College. The main part of the course I enjoyed was keeping fit and active along with learning the technical aspects of sport science.

I had to make sure the horses were brought in and out of the field. I learnt how to ride a horse and how to care for one. The management of it was excellent they told you if you did anything wrong and told you how to do it better . The hardest part of the job was to make sure that you had given the correct horse the right medicine. The most enjoyable part was learning how to ride the horse.
Pros
something that i enjoyed
Cons
long hours
