You need to do your best to stay on and advance in your career. Friendly and supportive environment, My experience was good. I started as a casual teacher and climbed the ladder over the years and ended as an Education Manager.

Relaxed workplace with fantastic staff

Causal staff pay is reasonable, however contract wages are not great and there is no opportunities to grow within the company in the same department. There is flexibility to change departments.

Productive and supportive environment workplace.

I had a wonderful time at Holmesglen Institute with two great mentors that training me for couple weeks what need to be done on daily basic. The workplace culture incredibly fun and warming because I was always learning new things. For me, initiative and hardworking is a way of demonstrate our working habits. Therefore, I put my all in everything at work and never a day that is boring to me. I believe we all always learning and learning is fun.

Informative and fun work place

As a student, I enjoyed learning more in depth about make up and was all very hands on, from evening, bridal, day wear and cat walk make up. It was enjoyable and very informative. What I learnt, how to perfect every make up look. Management, brilliantly organised Culture, friendly, skillful and chatty The hardest part, none. Enjoyable, learning more about something I am passionate about.

Pros

Learning more about make up

Cons

Went too fast

Revolving door culture

Holmesglen is truly a terrible place to work!! There is a “revolving door” approach in this department- get them in, burn them out, teacher leaves, get fresh victims. I’ve seen it for years! Complaints from students continue to increase because the teachers that stay become jaded and mean.

Pros

Pay is good

Cons

Overworked, disorganised, mean teachers

Not a place for me to grow old in

Senior management needs to start listening to the people that do the work and not the department heads. A cultural change needs to occur for HOLMESGLEN to improve its staff retention and staff experience.

Pros

People

Cons

Lack of decision making, no direction

I am enjoying my work in assisting international students. My workplace is relaxed and friendly.

There is often not a typical day at my workplace due to working with a high number of students and staff. I am learning a great deal about the education and training sector, including the rewards and limitations. The workplace culture is friendly and easy going, noncompetitive and supportive for the most part. The hardest part of the job is being limited by budget/resources available. The most enjoyable part is community engagement.

Great place to work

In my time, I found the staff and students friendly. I had good hours and was able to work by myself, while having the support I needed. This was a casual position.

Excellent culture and very friendly colleagues.

Excellent culture and very friendly colleagues. Friendly and polite students. Really enjoy teaching there. Just one thing, parking fee is a bit high, $4 per day.

Culturalmente distinta al resto de mis experiencias

La jornada es parcial, 5 horas diarías. Aprendi principalmente a como manejar una pequeña clínica de masajes. Todos mis colegas generarón un hambiente grato y cómodo de trabajo. Lo más positivo fué todo lo aprendido referente a las distintas técnicas pero por sobre todo a como conectar con los clientes.

I learn something from my students everyday

Working as a chef for the past 20 years it's time I teach what I've learnt and pass on my knowledge to up and coming chefs and students. Since beginning my apprenticeship at Crown I've learnt many different techniques and worked with a lot of chefs from around the world.

Pros

Watching students evolve to their full potential

Cons

Students that drop out

Life at Holmesglen

Day involves teaching 18-25 year olds about the sport industry and different aspects of it linked to units of competency. I learned that even in government, the most important thing is how much money the organisation makes and even a TAFE over an private RTO still does not care too much about the students best interest. The best part of working at a TAFE are good pay and working conditions, but little stability and your creativity, opinion and ideas are of no consequence. The organisaion looks from a negative mindset in terms of how to avoid loss and minimise risk rather than an optimistic one of looking at opportunities for growth and improvement.

Pros

Good Work Hours

Cons

Management restrict creativity
