Education & Instruction
A typical day is never boring with opportunities to learn and upskill. The work culture has improved significantly since internal structural changes. Colleges have improved engaging with students and colleagues alike. However, at times slow to recruit and staff are expected to do more for less
A typical day at CDU consisted of dealing with historic complaints from students and stakeholders. The induction was slapdash and management made a lot of excuses about the lack of quality in education at CDU. The teaching and learning materials are poor. My managers have been there for at least a decade, one has been employed at CDU for nearly three decades. Inertia. Organisational culture is a problem but may improve with the new VC appointed in 2021. I was in the VET sector (holding a MEd) and as far as I am concerned, VET at CDU hasn't improved since I worked as a contractor at CDU VET in 2005/06 - prior to ASQA. In 2021, I did not witness compliance with the Standards of RTOs (2015). I sighted evidence of non-compliance from 2017. Two staff that were employed from elsewhere prior to 2021 told me they were told "don't rock the boat" and they would be okay at CDU. According to research, equity cohorts have not been served in the NT despite oodles of NT/Federal funding going to CDU.
Love the people in my own department but I am aware of other people in other departments being unhappy; Allowed remote/ work from home and highly flexible. Love working in collaborative teams.
above average pay and benefits, little opportunity for career advancement, good location, average management, good work life balance, bit laid back...
Collaborative and supportive and providers of good positive and helpful feedback on staff performance. Good resouces and training materials and encouragement of professional learning opportunities. For example I was funded to upgrade my TAE Certificate IV although I was on a fixed contract. This was greatly appreciated and and is a major reason for my very high ratings of this organisation.
