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.

Amazing Culture! That's about it.

Culture is amazing. Friendly people and everyone is laid back and enjoys a chat. You'd have to really try to fault the place under a casual contract. Rates are good and work is minimal. Management is abysmal though, outdated tech and reluctance to evolve with the times is certainly hurting the company. But oh well.

Pros

Best culture ever, Very good casual rates

Cons

No training or induction, management is disconnected terribly, outdated processes and procedures harm productivity

Once was a fun and productive place to work but since going corporate it has changed for the worse.

Far too many middle management doing made up jobs, too much redundant and ridiculous paperwork for admin and teachers. It is more like a corporate institution than an educational one. Has been systematically ruined by dodgy CEOs.

Pros

The students

Cons

Ridiculous amounts of meaningless paperwork

Poor management and ethos

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

Lovely and diverse students and staff

Cons

Poor management and ethos. Nepotism is rife.

Poor culture, teachers treated as a necessary evil rather than as the front line people delivering the primary customer service

It's a lousy place to work with management now in thrall to spread sheets and business analysts with little focus on how to really engage students and support teachers

Pros

Salaries

Cons

Long hours little recognition, lazy people often favoured over hard workers dysfunctional management
