I have a new job!

Discussion in 'Personal' started by cosmos, Sep 16, 2011.

  1. So many of you were so supportive when I left my college earlier this year that I thought you might like to know that I have a new job.
    A different college, teaching my subject to adults! Bliss. It is only evening classes and Saturday workshops at the moment but I have been given carte blanche to develop the course in any way I want. And they are paying me a huge amount of money to do it, including attending meetings and an hour's prep time per week (unheard of for sessional lecturers in FE).
    So now I have the best of both worlds - semi-retirement and a job that is going to be brilliant. Can't stop smiling. [​IMG]

    Well done - there aren't many FE jobs out there.
     
  11. Indeed not moonpenny. Especially in my subject (sorry, I can't say what it is as there are so few of us in this area)
    This college is so different to the last - staff morale is high, they appear to be treated as adults, not micromanaged, paperwork is much reduced.....I even have a budget for resources! Oh deep, deep joy.

     
  12. Congratulations - I am really pleased for you

    Sounds like my school Cosmos.
    Wonderful isn't it? I'd quite forgotten what it is like to be treated not only as an adult but also as an intelligent human being!
    Oh, and to be thanked for doing a wonderful job!
