My work place is educative because lot of workshop by training and equipped me on my weak areas. The team is a very instrumental and effective in their work
Reasonable food affordability
Expecting good health care
good benefits and pay. But demands are increasing and unreasonable. During the pandemic you are required to risk your life or lose your job. You are also expected to use approx 10% of your salary on resources.
paid sick leave and health insurance
I have been permanently employed by the Ministry of Education. This Ministry is operated by the Government of Jamaica. As an employee of the Ministry of Education in Jamaica, my job has no expiry date until I become 65 years old. I am entitled to paid holidays, paid vacation leaves and paid study leaves.The management is good.
Opportunity to work with different populations, functional autonomy, clinical supervision and paid vacation and sick leave are all great benefits. There is a poor relationship with HR so there is little job security and untimely payment of benefits
A normal working day always begin with our morning devotion by elected pupil as allocated in the weekly & daily roster. The management are very supportive in supplying our stationery needs in time. The culture is unique compared to other learning providers, their is always a get together to celebrate staff birthdays, church function and school achievements in extra-curricula and academic. The hardest and very challenging is the disciplining of students, this makes me employ all my sensitivity to be vigilant and visible whenever possible to avoid disruptions and unnecessary misconduct. Yes, when about fifty percent of my customers are from broken families and majority are raised by their grandparents. The most enjoyable and rewarding to me when they appreciate my time and advice of encouragement that leads me to tears and the loveliest of all when seeing them graduated at Uni and leads successful lives that brings about a whole person - and make them the reliable and responsible member of our society.
I learned to combine science with art and I need a spectrum of different skills, teaching requires a combination of passion, motivation, pedagogy, and patience. I have always loved working with children of all ages. to teach is to touch a life forever.
a day of work involved receiving, storing and issuing of materials as requested by the internal users ( user departments). It was all a learning process at the ministry as each day came with its own work challenge. Here I mainly dealt with suppliers and internal customers and you realise that each client is different thus calling for an all round character to handle each one as they come. it was a very interesting carrier as I met many people and made new friends from time to time. the hardest part was when suppliers would deliver goods that do not meet specifications.

There's always someone to recognize you and appreciate the service you have rendered to this country
financial benefits not being monitored and taken care of to most of the meaningful work
The working day starts at 7 : 30 am up to 17:00 with a lunch break of of an hour from 12:30 to 13:30. I have learnt harding working and spirit sacrifice because ministry do not pay overtime but students need extra time for them to do well. good management skills because no performers are easily seen by the results at the end of academic year. Team work is always needed to accomplish set goals. Good however is remote area housing is a challenge making causing you to reach home tired due long distance handling large classes and teaching 42 periods a week instead of maximum 18 per week due to shortage of staff. when you are meeting graduates that you taught them.
no salary deduction when sick. study leave for upgrading
over working, lack of instructional materials
Working through the Ministry of Education is the ultimate customer service one could venture into. Your students become apart of your world. Growth and Development is always catered and welcomed. It is always a wonderful place to increase and be among the best. Purpose, Objective, Aim, Procedure, A high level of self worth and being is felt working through this mean.
Best work environment
Salary could be better
The most satisfying thing about my work was getting pupils to pass and having smiles on their faces as they held their results. Its unfortunate as an employer, the government of zimbabwe has been facing many economic and financial challenges which in the end resulted in my resigning and opting to better my life by looking for a job here in the uae. The hardest part of my job in zimbabwe were the large classes with an average of 60 students in a class. Textbooks were not enough and the classrooms were not large enough .
