It’s like a family run business, run by bullies, management structure is so poor. Mostly nepotism applies . It was once a good place to work but for the past 10 years it’s been run by bullies.
Pros
None
Cons
Corruption

There was never a moment to relax you were always on the go doing something it was a very fast working environment where everything had a timeline and had to be done on time.

For nearly 20 years of work in the same college, I felt secure in my teaching job. However, I would rate work/life balance as 80% to 20%. Accessible but domineering management puts a lot of pressure on teachers especially with regard to time-consuming admin paperwork. On the positive side, there was a lot of CPD training which added to my IT and admin paperwork skills. I have also gained invaluable experience in teaching diverse and multicultural groups and awareness of the asylum and migrant system. The most notable and rewarding part of the job was teaching and my students' achievements.

I love working in my kitchen. We are like a small family. Kitchens are very busy, and there is often over time available. And another plus is that you get all the school holidays off

Great kitchen colleagues. We all helped each other. This job is ideal if you have kids at school as hours and holidays suit. I spent my 4 years at this job very happy. If you have any problems, the management are willing to do what they can to help. I only had one problem at another school kitchen but it was quickly resolved. Hard, fast work but worth it.
