Was a great workplace, but recently deteriorated by government spending cuts.
Electronics Teacher and Technician (Former Employee) – Dandenong VIC – 29 June 2016
Well equipped classrooms.
Great learning environment for students.
Teaching was very rewarding.
I learnt how to self-manage and be creative in my teaching delivery.
Upper level management driven by accountants and government auditing requirements.
Middle level management driven by compliance and reporting issues.
Lower level management driven by attempting to maintaining team harmony, between teachers and upper and middle level management.
My co-workers were always very friendly and in the main, nice people, but in recent times, more and more co-workers were part time contract type workers or sessional workers who had no ownership or desire to maintain the quality of the program delivery material.
Hardest part of my recent job requirements, was ensuring compliance and accurate reporting, to satisfy government ASQA expectations or Skills-Victoria auditing requirements.
Most enjoyable part of the job was to see student develop and excel in their learning.
Very rewarding and intersting job, with the possibility of overseas work.
Being away from the industry workplace, you become detached and lose touch with industry practices.
