It was a good place to work at as the staff was friendly. Students came from different ethnic backgrounds . The staff often got opportunities to develop themselves with continuous CPD courses. Management put teachers under too much pressure during observations and OFSTED You couldn’t enjoy teaching as the paperwork preparation was too intense and took too much time .
Pros
Increment of salary with new qualifications
Cons
Too much paperwork, always a problem with schemes of work, lesson plans, etc New management, new paperwork

The most negative educational establishment I have encountered. This was due to the lack of organisation of the course I was part of and the negative, depressing attitude of the tutors.
Pros
I gained my HND qualification.
Cons
Tutors, Organisation.

Fast paced, busy working environment dependant on job role. I learnt a lot over my 5 year time period at the college and progressed into 4 different job roles which involved promotions. Difficult working environment, due to constant restructures and now a merger. Staff are on a low morale due to constant poor changes. Hardest part of the job poor communication college wide. Seeing the positive results you achieve first hand getting the student on the right course, or providing them with support.

Worked in a very busy front of house customer services department, dealing with students, parents/carers and members of the public Filing and archiving student files from the previous academic year Preparing for a forthcoming local authority audit and ensuring the paperwork could uphold scrutiny Assisting with cross college business support areas as and when required Management was always on hand to help, give advice and was willing to adapt to our needs. I have never come across such friendly, approachable and passionate staff as I did at Redbridge College. I have honestly learnt from this experience the importance and value of maintaining professionalism within any workplace. Moreover the administrative staff within educational institutes are the foundation of the business. Was the long hours of the day and the time taken to travel to and from home was the most difficult part of the job. I enjoyed all aspects of the job but especially enjoyed forming part of the learner voice interview selection panel, when interviewing for lecturers My greatest achievement was when I was asked to return to the College as to form part of the judging panel of the learner talent show and also be guest vocal artist. Following this I was asked to perform at the college’s charity gala dinner
Pros
Gaining great experience
Cons
No free lunch
