Overall Review
My days are well planned in advance and I am aware of the timetable and where I need to be. I produce my collate my resources when I arrive at work so that I am ready to start teaching on time.I feel that I am managed and supported by my peers well.I feel that the hardest part of my job is keeping track of the different level's progression, as I teach 3 different groups within the GVL remit. This also encompasses different levels within the same learning group.The most enjoyable part of my role is the engagement with learners and the support that I receive from my peers.
Systems and Data Support Administrator in Southend-on-Sea, Essex

Welcoming and Well Organised
I have had a friendly welcome from whomever I have spoken with. The initial training you receive is well organised and provides you with an introduction to all of the different teams at the college. They have a central home page where it is easy to navigate important websites or documents such as floor plans of each campus. You can have porridge or a croissant for breakfast for free, parking is also free but on a first come first serve basis. I received a laptop to work from home or for meetings when needed and also a desktop on site to use - really enjoying the role so far.

Great staff/ facilitates have room for improvement
Since I started working at the college I feel part of a team and valued. I like my regular student review meetings with my manager as this gives me a chance to discuss and share anything that's on my mind or that I am concerned about. I enjoy talking to lots of different people. And as an added bonus because I work with hairdressing students, I get free haircuts.

Encouraging and Supportive
From the moment I stated I felt supported. In fact, I felt valued from the interview onwards. I had regular contact, via email, from management and HR to keep me appraised of the progress with DBS checks and referral letters. My days are spent supporting students who have additional learning needs.
