lack of support
I worked as a lecturer at HMP Portland, surrounded by some of the best co-workers I've met in my career. However, this place has a lack of vision and provides zero support to its teachers. Working in a prison setting was a very fun and interesting experience, however, facing college's management was very challenging. 1) I did not have access to basic and necessary materials for my teaching, which was the result of lack of organization by the college.2) I felt unsupported when I was raising any issues, receiving answers such as “Welcometo prison” or “This is life”.3) There is lack of professional development; I created collaborations with well established organizations. However, I then received answers such as "you try to run before you walk". In addition to this, I wasn't supported to complete or promote the practical outputs of the above collaborations. 4) you have to teach the same group for 3 hours without break, something that I find unethical when you have students with multiple LDDs, health and mental health problems.

Toxic culture that stems from the top
An interesting approach to lead by consistently threatening to fire entire departments at Christmas wide college talks if they cannot make students into high performing monkey exam machines. What would be useful would be to focus on actually developing students skills instead of focusing on continuing to make more money with less resources. It would also be great if you did not have teachers teach classroom sizes over 40 and have most of the students not have even a chair to sit on or room to sit on a table.

OK but could be better
When I first started it seemed to be going well but after some time I realised that the department I was working in had pretty poor management, breakdown in communication, some staff were quite cliquey. Often found myself wondering what I was supposed to be doing with little to no direction. Too many meetings held which had little impact on my own job role and felt like a huge waste of my time when I could have been doing something useful.

Productive and fun workplace
I enjoy working here, I believe there is a very good management in place and a real focus on performance and quality. I am very happy with the IT systems, communication tools and the feeling that everyone is valued.
