Toxic atmosphere, micromanagement, bullying
Toxic atmosphere, micromanagement, bullying, short staffing, excessive workloads, lack of facilities.
The college used to be a great place to work, but when the government started reducing financing and increasing workloads in FE the atmosphere began to change.

Almost everyone has been forced out through illness, bullying or stress.

Dreadful. Very, very stressful work place
A really horrible place to work with a culture of bullying from senior managers. Students were aggressive, undisciplined and of extremely low ability. You do not make a difference there. It is horrible and best avoided.
Voice an opinion and management will ensure you are gone!

I was just on work experience
I was just on work experience.

In general, the experience for me was beyond great. It was my first taste of a working environment and I relished within it.


I did not do much though as I was only there for a week.

Telford New College
My experience at the New College was pleasant, my manager was very supportive and we had regular one to ones which were very helpful.

When we moved to Telford College, I did not enjoy working across two departments which clearly had a different way of working. It was quite stressful and I didn’t enjoy going to work.

Awful work place
Awful work place with discrimination. They don’t value or support their staff. Place the students in the wrong courses ( most of the students don’t have foundation to the courses they doing). Very poor management.

awful place to work - avoid - toxic management
Big problems with middle and senior management.
Very unstable senior team. Worst issues are in Apprenticeship department. 3 heads of department in 12 months - one only lasted 6 weeks before leaving! Do not value their staff. Assessors and Sales staff treated very poorly - long history of all staff being bullied by department manager, often yelled and sworn at. High number of assessors on long term sick leave due to stress and anxiety caused by micro management.
Pros
nice canteen
Cons
bullying management culture

Poorly managed and chasing government funding
The management was poor with no staff support leading to too much pressure and stress. Discipline was lacking and class size greater than the number of chairs at times.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
Management and support

Telford College
Telford College employs some fantastic teachers and trainers. It has slowly slipped down the educational rankings but I have loved working in the team I am in. We did not do well with OFSTED but I am sure the establishment is on its way to restoring some of its former kudos as a sector leader. It currently has a huge financial debt and this makes job security weak.
Pros
Dedicated staff.
Cons
It has had a pay freeze for 8 years
