Teaching Assistant (Work Experience) (Former Employee) – New Romney Little cubs nursery – 19 August 2017
It's a great place to study, I spent four years studying there and at times it was stressful but the staff as in my tutors were very supportive, and they never doubt you, they give critical feedback, which is good because that's how you learn.
Nominal Ledger Clerk (Former Employee) – Broadstairs, Kent – 6 June 2017
Good place to work, nice colleagues but a lot of turmoil due to government funding and continual redundancy programs due to funding. Heavy workload and no loyalty from management during my time but hopefully that is different now
Learning support practitioner (LSP) (Current Employee) – Folkestone – 20 November 2016
I have worked in many different departments, helping students with various learning difficulties and disabilities. I had a great team of co-workers who always kept each other and the students as their top priority and the overall atmosphere is pleasant and friendly.
The hardest part of my job is the amount of change that happens within the college and the amount of different training and tasks we must adapt to, however my favourite part would also be that i have gained much valuable experience in many different places within my work and had the opportunity to work with a range of different people in different education subjects.
Classroom assistant (Former Employee) – Broadstairs – 19 September 2016
I think east Kent college was really good I enjoyed going to college and learning new thing and I was also making new friends and the teachers where really helpful through out the 2years I was going to college to do childcare
I enjoy the Job but the day can sometimes seem long. Varied students from 16 up to 50 years old or more. More funding would help to bring students to a more level playing field with franchise apprenticeships, but the quality of the students leaving is very good. Good comradery amongst the staff and willingness to help made the job enjoyable.
learning to work with students who have lots of different needs

Vice President of Student Union (Former Employee) – Maison Dieu Road, Dover, Kent – 8 June 2015
Being a Vice president in College was fun because I need to make students in college happy by listening to them and doing that job which the students asked me to do. Also, benefits that I had from being a Vice President is being responsible, willing to learn and most thing of hard work! The hardest bit of all is speaking to students in front of the class.
Studied hairdressing. (Former Employee) – Broadstairs, ENG – 12 February 2014
East Kent college was just like working a full days work and studying the course was interesting,however it was not for me,therefore leaving the college gave me the option of looking for a job to get my life started.
The environment was very comfortable to be around,with teachers and staff who kept each and single one safe and enjoyed their job teaching you. It was easy to get to one place to another with excellent space for everyone to be in.
I learned a lot about my course,mainly things I never knew about hair before and to learn different techniques was fairly interesting and surprisingly easy to what I expected it to be.
The most enjoyable part of the course was learning with people who are keen to learn and who are interesting people to be around which created a massive friendship within the group.
