As with any lecturing position you have a large amount of leave which coincides more or less with the school holidays.

This is perfect if your kids are young and they need to be looked after during this time.

Northlink College is a college that works on collaboration and support. The most enjoyable part of my job was watching the students grow and thrive through the challenges within a tertiary level education environment.

A typical day at work was fun, I've learned a lot especially from the students. Management knew how to help employees and give a hand when needed.

The hardest part of my job was to deal with difficult/noisy students that didn't adhered to rules and regulations.


Overall it is a very open place to work at.

The department I worked in was mismanaged, understaffed and dirty. The standards that are required of the college by Pearson are not met. Staff positions are not advertised as required by the law. Funds are mismanaged and nepotism is alive and well

Assisting facilitators, students with general admin duties, answering inquiries, filling, creating registers, meetings regarding project progress and completion of projects. The hardest part of the job is working with people that is not team players. Cracking a few jokes and laughing with colleagues is most enjoyable at work.
Pros
Confidence in admin staff to get the job done independently
Cons
They take way too long to make staff permanent

My typical day started with a meeting with my staff and then we all engaged with an assembly with the students.

I've learned a lot about students who are struggling from various impoverished communities.


I gave opportunities to staff to make positive decisions in order for them to develop. The toughest part of the job were parents who did not show an interest in their children s development.


The enjoyment part are always students who have a smile on their faces when success arrives through their hard work.
Pros
Intervention with struggling students were a joy.
Cons
Long hours at college way beyond the required hours to ensure success.

Wonderful place to work for. With so many campuses, not all campuses are run in the same manner. At some colleges the atmosphere is much more relaxed than others. This is a plus. The pressure on my campus is extreme and unnecessary. Things can be more pleasant if the campus is run like all the other campuses. Not much room for growth as a lecturer.
Pros
Working with older students.
Cons
Upper Management unfriendly towards lecturers.
