INSTRUCTOR/ TUTOR (Former Employee) – St Helens, Merseyside – 27 August 2017
Worked here for a few years. Every year staff were facing redundancy. The colleagues that I worked with were great apart from the bosses favourites. Management pile lots of pressure on to staff and then blame them when things don't go to their plan. The culture is "if there breathing....enroll them" and pass them as everyone that stays passes. Salary not great either for the work and stress. Students are not the best behaved.
Lecturer (Part-time) (Former Employee) – Merseyside – 12 July 2017
I learned a lot about teaching whilst at St Helens College, the staff are very supportive, although the management could be a bit more supportive. The workplace culture is very positive and focused on student achievement and progression. The hardest part of the job is the excessive workload and lack of resources, however management are working on addressing these issues. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the students learn and progress in their studies and knowing that you are playing a part in their success.
