    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the College group is so succesfull and in constant transition, remuneration should be amended reflecting the additional workload. High performers should be recognised and encouraged to stay and grow withing the management structure. Non existent bonus must be removed asap and overtime shoudl be included across the board.

    I worked at Newcastle College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There's a lot of good reasons to work there - but the heavy handed management practices fails to allow thinking out of the box. As well as pitching colleges against one-another!

    Cons

    Avoiding the "power" of the management to make your life hell.
    Even the Unions do not rate this college, due to its dreadful management practices.

    Do a search on YouTube for some excellent videos, including a BBC 1 News review from 2011 - draw your own conclusions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top down management, is not a solution!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
