    I worked at Oxford and Cherwell Valley College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Staff very helpful and good to work with. Although many people are over-worked they will always try to help you. Managers supportive of student disciplinary issues. Some money available for teaching resources. Ability to gain formal qualification whilst teaching for as little as 3 hours per week. Driven and passionate Principal.

    Cons

    Typical of FE. Many departments are over-stretched so staff do the job of 2-3 people. Managers spend a lot of time in meetings but insufficient time finding out what they can do to support front- line staff. If you are teaching a non-practical subject there is little acknowledgment of the lesson preparation and marking that you are required to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more money on extra staff and less on meetings and away days for managers. Time given over to staff development is great, but insufficient time given to staff to prepare lessons and mark student work.
