Change was recognised but SMT not prepared to make changes. There was no support dealing with very challenging learners. Awful experience and not what I would wish on anyone.
No support. Threatened regularly by learners. Very low expectations of learners.
Its a good starting point. The College seems to be growing. There are lots of potental but opportunities are not tapped into. I enjoyed working here but then again am self motived and very independent did not need much collaboration. Found this collaboration with others missing.

. Lesson and workshop preparation. . Teaching and assessment of students practical tasks. . Entering feedback to students progression (written and electronically). . Attending team meeting. . Interview evenings. . Open evenings. . Workshop maintenance. While my specific work area has a very good staff relationship this cannot be said for the lack of management support especially when dealing with certain student issues.

Felt like this place was run by emotions rather than logic. People are overworked and mentally beaten down. Staff go above and beyond for the children (nursery) however are not appreciated-hence the large turnover of staff. Extra hours are not paid and seldom given back. Younger staff are patronized, people who work hard aren't appreciated, people who don't are.
Employees overworked and taken for granted
The people I worked with were very kind and knowledgeable, however they did not know where some pieces of equipment were, of which I would have needed to fully completed tasks. I was kept busy which I enjoyed. I was already attending the college so I knew where all the animals were and they were maintained very well. There was no payment as I was doing work experience.

One employee seemed unsociable
