Department of Education Reviews

 

An eye-opener

The typical day at the office will be attending to parents , learners and teachers needs. Also is to run the administrative side of things. I have a good working relationship with all of my colleagues, the underlying factor for that is that I treat everyone in a professional manner regardless. Apart from my actual work duties, I have learn so much from different people and situation that I came across here at work. I have learnt the importance of professionalism as it translate to everyday life. I enjoy the interaction that I have with different stakeholders. I also enjoy the pressure that comes with the job. In terms of the work that i am doing, I have not really experienced any challenge hence the need to move away to most challenging environment.

Pros: A learning curve and experience
Cons: Little room for promotion

Team work is very important,it helps a lot .I learn from other people in order to improve my skills . I have learnt a lot from my job,financial skills and public finance management act. I also learnt that filling is more important in every organisation. one should always keep record of the work done. Respect is more important in a work field in order to achieve excellent results. Telephone etiquette is more important in every organisation and the attire does count. We are always professional.

Pros: great learning area

Working for the department of education you need to make sure to keep its values and mission.

Working for the Department of education is interesting especially with the kids, because you learn something new everyday about the learners, they need your passion,love and understanding and also the communication with the parents is very important because we work hand in hand together without the parents help you wont be able to help the child, especially when it comes to the needs of the child you need to learn his/her family background.

Pros: As an administrator you learn to work with different people and careers.
Cons: being at work alone during school holidays
