The teaching assistant job was a learning experience. My supervisor was very understanding in terms of my hours of work since i was completing my Bachelors in Clothing and Textiles. I was able to interact with students, help with any work related queries and as well assist my supervisor with any administration activities. The challenge was balancing work and studies which i managed with help of my supervisor.
Pros
Supervisor was understanding, flexible hours, interaction with students, warm environment, learning administration
Cons
Juggling work and studies

Conduct a tutorial based on chapter which major of the class find it difficult to grasp, its very challenging as I have to think on my feet and find means to explain and provide practical examples that simplifies the concepts and create a clear overview of the chapter for students to understand better.

The managements of Cput are very poor because they don't care what they pays you to do better job for them.


No good ethnics and good mentor for postgraduate degree. Much more to say but I will rather end it there.
Pros
No good managements
Cons
longs hours
