I have definitely learned a lot from only few months of working experience on the Ryde campus. My team is realy supportive and productive. My manager is very skill full and has a show-case leadership. I am very happy with my role.

Do not work for this company.

They are toxic, manipulative and it's really unpleasant to work for. They can not keep staff, if you look at the staff photos everyone is new, no one stays and I've had several staff members tell me it's a horrible environment and they only stay as they are too old to get other positions else where.The hardest part of this job is the people you work with they are toxic and will lie behind your back to any and everyone. Other people aren't suprised when I mention this as it's a government agency and apparently they are all like this. It's great to have on your resume but that is it.The pay is terrible and they keep you on as a contract so they don't have to pay you sick leave or a decent wage.Honestly the most enjoyable part was when I found another job and quit.

Not valid not respected not appreciated I gave them almost 20 years of dedicated service and they worn me down they worn everyone down all the good left for all the puppets to stay the young without any idea or experience replaced us all. It is a very toxic environment and many are still experiencing the trauma

Best day job I have had so far!

Most days I would start work by answering student phone calls for the Teachers, that may or may not started work for the day & check any emails that maybe in our in box. I learned about how to appropriately speak to Students that may have a disability that may require some help in their course they are studying & the appropriate Teacher/Consultant to refer them to. My manager & Head Teachers were very supportive & were very quick at returning a call to a student that may have needed some help from us. I met some of my best friends while working at TAFE. While it was busy & could be intense & had it's challenges - it was a very rewarding job. The hardest part of the job, was having to hear the sad stories from some of the students, with regards to their person challenges - that you might only be able to help by taking the time to listen. Being able to help someone who was distressed when they called you, be happy with the outcome & tell you how grateful they are for the assistance.
