Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working is routine and lacks dynamic challenges. Career moves on a horizontal plane as the apex of one's ability and capability is not fully realised.

A lot of team work and varied activities through out the day

Basically have an eight hours working day and the teaching load is a minimum of twenty and a maximum of thirty for the languages department. The day starts with an assembly , followed by assembly attendance register and a mini staff briefing each morning, then for lessons. There should be team work for the school objectives to be successful as well as for good ethos to prevail in school. Firmness and decisiveness is required in a leader for subordinates might take advantage of that if not careful.

Pros

A free working environment

Cons

slack supervision which subordinates take advantage of.

educative and value addition to learners

flexible working hours with a lot of supervision. The school is multi-racial thereby bringing challenges of integration. Working with Children is the most enjoyable part although the remuneration is not commensurate with the workload. However there are opportunities for further training through workshops.

Pros

free lunch and fuel

Cons

non monetary incentives.

A fairly relaxed working environment

Although I worked with the Ministry of Education for a fairly short period, I found the experience quite rewarding. I had a very supportive School Head who went out of his way to teach me the skills of the trade. Teaching exposed me to the diversity of thought among students and allowed me to see the world from multiple lenses. The significant challenge that I faced was that I did not have a clear career path in the teaching field.

Pros

Exposure to students' unique and diverse thought processes

Cons

The professional career path was not clear

productive and satisfying place

My work experience at the Ministry of Education was good but was not fulfilling.I had set some goals for myself to achieve when l started working but the possibility of achieving them start to dwindle and wane into oblivion after the country fell on economic hard times.However I want to state that my working relationship with my employer was cordial and sound.

I enjoyed working there. I only left because better qualified people were employed.

when a child does not want to talk to you. Patience pays. workmates are helpful. I enjoy getting instructions and working as a team. I push myself to do the work. I dislike striking workers because they destroy property and their future.

Pros

free lunch

Cons

strikes
