Very friendly and helpful staff

PhD Student (Current Employee)

ProsGood access to educational training and tools, especially good at preparing you for becoming a full time teacher or lecturer, or organising other staff members. Also very good at preparing you for different career options within full time postgraduate education, or academia

ConsVery specific teaching styles which have even filtered down to the design of the classrooms often detracts from the student experience, which leaves the teachers feeling ineffectual and underused. Management have been known to try to screw you out of money for no reason.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
