    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at UWS College for more than a year

    Pros

    Great friendly work environment. Committed to education of disadvantaged students.

    Cons

    Sessional staff marginalised - no benefits. Insufficient allowance/compensation for the non-teaching time required for quality education delivery. Very short notice of work available and even shorter notice of work cancelled due to class cancellation. No compensation if you are timetabled for a session and then the class is cancelled - which is common on some campuses.

    Advice to Management

    Improve quality of teaching by improving allowance for essential non-teaching activities. Do not simply "dump" sessional staff because a class is cancelled. Highly qualified teachers should not be treated as disposable assets. Consider re-deployment instead of "dumping".
