A place that certainly has the potential, but Management hasn't a clue
Food and Beverage Lecturer (Current Employee) – My location now is Tobago. (Trinidad & Tobago) – January 20, 2015
A typical day at work is getting on Campus at 8:00am, depending on your assigned shift. I mostly work for 12:00noon to 8:00pm.
You enter the classroom where students are always absent. You try to complete your course schedule, but the Marketing department is always on a different role. You sometime begin a class to then hear there will be a staff meeting.
Functions are taken at the Institute and sometimes classes have to be held in inappropriate classrooms/or cancelled.
The students are not the School's priority,
Management is disorganized and lack of effective communication is viral. Some co-workers are not qualified to do the job. I believe the most difficult part of the job is not knowing what you're going to teach until a few days before. Rather than allowing 'Faculty to plan for their classes, they always seem to have some way out training session, that uses us valuable time.
Undoubtedly the most enjoyable part of my job is dealing with students. I do believe that I bring out the very best in someone.
Teaching was my first passion, hence the reason I loved teaching there. I do not like teaching there because, people who haven't a clue about the Hospitality, are clueless. They think you demand too much for your client/guest.
teaching is my passion, we do benefit from holidays, we have a medical plan, we have a retirement plan.
not enough planning time, too many meetings, salary needs improvement, no scope for personal career upliftment, lack of respect for lecturers.
