Loved the career choice but not the unrealistic targets expected of me.
Vocational learning adviser (Former Employee) – Kent – 18 March 2016
Although I enjoyed the job itself, the thing that let the job down was the pressures to meet unrealistic targets, which left me feeling a failure at my job. The support and guidance was not there when it was needed and led to me becoming unwell. In the nine months I worked here I learned how to assess the diploma's, how to make up lesson plans for the diploma's and functional skills. I invigilated the tests for the functional skills. I managed my own diary using outlook, communicated by phone, email and face to face with carers and their managers within the profession and also within the company. The hardest part of the job was to keep up with the targets of the company to sign up new learners, complete them within the course timescale and book in the learners within the four to six weeks allowed with a large database of learners.
