    Pros

    The staff is very helpful and responsive.Student services are great and effective.

    Cons

    The lecturers are very good and know very well about the subject they are teaching, but some have difficulties speaking english because they are not from the UK. I sometimes had difficulties to understand the lectures.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training to lecturers with presentation skills and knowledge communication.

    Pros

    Good teams and leadership, with opportunities for progression and good staff development opportunities with regular reviews. Friendly atmosphere. Decent benefits and opportunities to travel, reasonable holiday allowance and good flexitime arrangements.

    Cons

    Temporary year-long contracts for some roles, whilst ideal in many ways, made development of ideas difficult in some areas. One team settles in and finds their feet, then develops a few new ideas about how to improve procedures, but moves on fairly quickly so ideas can sometimes end up only half introduced.
