Very hard to move from casual to part-time or full time. prior education qualifications treated as worthless without Cert IV in training and assessment. An incredible amount of admin including enrolling and withdrawing students personally. Not much admin support.

Language teacher (Former Employee) - Preston
Since This TAFE employed a series of business CEO's and spent thousands on changing their name, it has gone downhill in its treatment of its employees. It retains permanent contract workers regardless of their teaching abilities and is not loyal to its casual teachers. Management have made a series of huge mistakes resulting in debt and has made teachers pay for their mi
Pros

Do you want to get high blood pressure? Then work at Melb Poly.
I speak four languages, and I’m qualified.

After five years working with them long hours/working on weekends and I was doing lots of things that’s was not in my job description and on the top of that I was bullied every single day from a few admins just because they were close friends with managers. One manager and two team leaders managing 6 or 7 admins....it was so hard to work with them.... the students couldn’t trust the admins because admins were sharing students personal information. Not professional.

After five years working so hard I lost my job for no reason, and after a few days four news staff started, and One of the new team was manager’s daughter, and the rest were manages’s friends.

I was shocked that the higher managers know about it and they didn’t do anything...I stayed in the hospital for two weeks because I was bullied and hurt
