Not a happy place to work. Senior management make decisions without consulting staff, like getting rid of staff too old for their blue sky agenda. Students are the best part of the job

I enjoyed being a student here, everyday was different! I learned to cook and bake more dishes. I also learned how to work in a team and had the honour to be part of baking for the college canteen. I pushed myself and surprised myself with end results

My time at college was valuable for learning new skills both physically and mentally. my college lecturer was very helpful to me. the people on the course were good to be around and share the course with. hardest part of the course was cutting new shapes from tiles. most enjoyable part was the people I got to meet building confidence in myself.
Pros
meeting new friends
Cons
short course

Not a nice place to work in at all. Overloaded with tasks non-stop. When you have a problem - the managers would not even make time to see you; and they would laugh behind your back. We heard from colleagues that staff are basically a number there...

I spent 10 months processing bursaries. As this was cover for maternity leave they were unable to keep me on. Lovely colleagues and it was a great experience.

hours were 0900 - 1700 monday to friday while in college and while on placement the hours were 0800 -1200 and 2000 - 0000 monday to sunday with overtime.
i learned a lot while in college. not just academically but i learned a lot about proper time management and how to work effectively under pressure.

in the college there was a mix of cultures from UK to Indian, Omanis, polish etc
