an organisation which is prosperous lovely culture which is dynamic

I worked at the mine for two years . I had a very profound relationship with my colleagues and management. There was a retrenchment in which most of us were left jobless due to economic hardships and politics.

Pros

free accomodation, lunches

Cons

long hours, strict safety standards to be adhered to

Productive Environment

The work days varied because you go to several schools within a week. Depending on your personality it can become lonely as you work by yourself at various schools and only visit the office once per month for meetings.

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

No teacher holiday

A typical day at work

Reaching to work an hour ahead of time to finish off work left from the day before. The telephone rings, no one knows am here already. Answered and there is a parent asking me if school is today. Yes sir i said did you hear something different. My child say the teacher say no school today. Sir no news letter was send home to that fact. You sure miss? Yes sir am sure. Ten minutes later, phones rings. Could you tell the principal that am not coming in today not feeling well, my head hurts, my throat aches. i didn't sleep good last night. If I don't feel better today. I will go to the doctor tomorrow. Okay, why don't you go today instead. i replied. No, i will try some home remedies first. Ok then. By now the Support Staffs reaches. How you doing? Why you here so early? You watch the news? You saw that man who kill his wife? How the boys? They okay? After dealing with all the interruption its 8am and the children have come in to purchase pencils. There's a reason you suppose to reach work an half an hour before your time but sometimes, well.

Pros

Half days during the Christmas and summer breaks

Cons

promotions takes long to occur.

Balanced workplace

A balanced workplace where a typical working day is funny. The working atmosphere is at times exciting and hilarious. However the majority of days are marked with boredom as there are no prospects for career advancement.

Very productive fun place to work at.

A typical day at work - very busy environment, work very interesting, never a dull moment. What I learned at the Ministry of Education - besides my role and responsibilities with the children of New Zealand, Everybody, regardless of what level you were/are in, matters. Workplace culture - very diverse organization. The hardest part of my job - was learning my job in the beginning. The most enjoyable part of the job - Every part was enjoyable, especially working with an amazing team.

review

teaching is a noble act of a person, which gathers between desk job and dealing with people ( teenagers ), nothing is difficult as long as you like your job and the most fun part is you will learn life so quickly in school

Moderate working condition

Good working environment, but it needs person with big heart because there is no motivation for workers With little remuneration. I didn't enjoy my working at the ministry of education although I really appreciate the little I got because its better than nothing.

The working culture in the ministry of Education in Zambia

Typically, it's all about doing the same things day in and day out. No new things are learnt The management top team lucks good experience. The working culture is very bad. The hardest time is when my subordinate turned down my instructions and opted to start reporting to my superior and my supervisor saw nothing wrong in it. This was so because my superior has been accused of having intimate friendship with my subordinate. The most exciting moment was when I was recognized as the most experienced.

Pros

Lunch is not provided

Cons

There is always a short break of 15 minutes

Good place for whom used to work in government job

I didn't learn too much as I'm not specialized in education field But it is nice place to work to have Work Life Balance as the working hours less than the private sector.
