    I have been working at TAFE full-time

    Pros

    Working on the forefront of technology, and working with a motivated team of lecturers. Preparing students for industry employment. Building new industry connections. Interesting discussions between industries.

    Cons

    Limitations of a large institution - less dynamic, constrained regulations, limited budget, employment uncertainty, fluctuating student numbers, lack of forward planning, misallocation of resources.

    Advice to Management

    Forward planning - TafeSA needs to adapt quickly to remain competitive with private institutions and universities. Funding for creative industries needs to be pushed, and we need to look at opening delivery to student online to increase class sizes.

    I worked at TAFE

    Pros

    Good working hours, the non supervisory staff are ok.

    Cons

    A bullying and discriminatory culture. Management is unresponsive to complaints made by employees - in fact complain and they show you the door.

    Advice to Management

    Get you head out of your balance sheets, get to know your staff and get rid of the bullies. They not only bully their staff but run down their students and you allow it. All the People and Culture 'we'll support you' is a lot of nonsense and you know it. You have a duty of care to your employees which you do not fulfil.
