Terrible place to work - poor treatment of staff
Lecturer (Current Employee) – Peterborough – 15 May 2015
To reiterate the reviewer below, their is no behaviour management in college, it seems you have to do something pretty extreme to get kicked out e.g. Physically assault someone, even then chances are slim. Students smoke drugs on site and when reported nothing is done. So much for zero tolerance!
The management have zero regard for staff welfare, work/life balance is nil and prepare to have no cpd unless you are prepared to pay for it. I thought it was a legal requirement to provide someone with the required training for a job for free? Maybe I'm wrong.
Be prepared to be dropped in the deep end, with no support or guidance, when things go wrong though be prepared to take the blame!
Some really lovely teachers there although morale is rock bottom and senior management couldn't care less. All they care about is filling courses up, it doesn't matter whether students are interested or not and money. You will also be given duties above and beyond what you should be doing, excessive amounts of open evenings, and whatever else they drop on you.
They couldn't organise a p-up in a brewery. Functional skills are in disarray and don't even get me started on the paperwork, where you will fill in four variations of the same form, just for them to all be lost!
You have been warned, avoid working here at all costs!
Excessive hours, poor treatment of staff, poorly organised
