Westwood ran like a business not a school
Instructor (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – March 17, 2018
Loved the people there and at first it was exciting being part of the ground floor, establishing curriculum, standards and getting equipment for the Graphic design dept. But each year the budget would get cut because they wanted to build another school. It was like they were trying to recreate the wheel. As if a tech school had never done this before. Alta Colleges, the parent company insisted on coming out with the latest trend degrees like: Criminal justice, or construction then they cut the Nursing program half way through student's degree. Bad move, as if we don't need Medical Careers.
It was a juggle not knowing what I was going to teach the next term until about 5 days before. I taught 14 different classes.
Lots of freedom designing curriculum
Not enough compensation and poor management style on the upper management levels.
