I currently work at New College Lanarkshire and would highly recommend it to anyone. The Coatbridge Campus has exceptionally friendly and helpful staff who are more than happy to help out a colleague. Don't hesitate to apply for a job here...you won't regret it.
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Some managers have no management skills

With theScottish Colleges being grouped together the management side are all fighting for their jobs and this makes for a most unpleasant working atmosphere. Very poorly managed

In general this was a great place to work. There are a lot of very dedicated and talented staff working there, especially in the Creative Industries Department.
The senior management team seemed to be doing a great job, although many of the middle managers seemed to be out of their depth and not very good at people management.

But, as I said above, it was a pretty good place to work overall.
Pros
Great teaching staff
Cons
Poor management by faculty head

Pros
Good working hours and benefits

I learned how to speak to customers in a good manor. The hardest part of the job was hard customers on the phone . A typical day at work was greeting customers, showing them to the correct beauty room , answering the phone and taking appointments.

Most of the lecturers are patient, polite, and friendly.
The students are happy to help one another with their work.

There is little judgement in the college.

I learned a lot about the subjects I an interested in such as software development and made a number of friends at New College Lanarkshire.

The funding and support for students does not available and run the way it should be. It seems to be that the worse a person you are the more help you get and they make a home/work balance very difficult.
