Quality of course and lecturers

I had the sad misfortune to "be there for several years". What a disgrace of a College! It featured truly APPALLING dunderheads for 'Senior Management'+ a VAST coterie of exploited, poorly-paid, PT/casualised teaching staff, employed on the very cheapest of pay rates & service conditions. Morale & motivation was at an all-time low: anything 'feel-good' was on-the-slide. Some students often failed to attend, except for 'course reviews' where they would be duly "passed" to get the funding. The sense of drift compared to my previous college was lamentable. Constructive advice for change was stonewalled, as inertia,(nay sclerosis) ruled! I never could have believed a college would prove so low-grade. It should have been strangled at birth..
