School Registry Officer Programmes (Former Employee) –  Cyncoed29 September 2017
Really enjoyed working at Cardiff Met. Day-to-day varied as different students with unique issues. Enjoyed helping students and academics with a range of issues e.g. module changes, academic profile, marks on student portal or enrolment issues. Working alongside Programme Directors who were so good on excel was the most enjoyable as enabled me to use data to extract trends and Exam Board information. Workplace environment has been fantastic - though a big organisation, always felt like a large family.
Pros
Annual Leave
Cons
Beauracracy

English teacher - casual (Current Employee) –  Cardiff, Cardiff23 January 2017
A typical day in work includes interacting and engaging with learners, motivating them to enjoy and pass their chosen academic pathway.

I have learned that I can manage my workload effectively to include the dualistic planning of lessons, alongside marking assignments and students written work.

The hardest part of the job is adjusting to work environments overseas.

The most enjoyable part of my job is working with staff and students alike. Everyday is different and varied.
