Associate Lecturer in Dublin
on 19 March 2020
Generally they support their staff but little job security for associate Lecturers
It's along time ago since I worked here. There was good support for lecturers. I ran into problems in my second year because I let myself be persuaded that I should take on twice the work load that I originally agreed to do because the lecturer that normally took the second class, after me on a Wednesday evening, fell off a ladder and was out sick for the rest of the semester. I was told that the students would lose four weeks lecture time if the college had to recruit a new lecturer. The alternative was that I squeeze all my lectures for the year into the first semester. I said I would need to think about it but I was pressured into agreeing immediately or leaving the department in a bad way. So reluctantly I agreed to take on the challenge. As a result I struggled to keep up over the next 8 weeks. The other thing about that college was that the college President in an effort to bring in students from disadvantaged backgrounds allowed students with no school leaving certificate to gain entry on a degree course with the promise that the college would get them up to speed. Half my mature students ability to communicate in the English language was appallingly bad while the other half of the class were brilliant with very little in between. Added to my woes was the idea, among my class, that my subject was about as useful to them as a swimsuit in a snow storm! (This was due to poor course structuring). My younger students in my first year of teaching, in contrast, had such a success with my subject that this contributed, to a large degree, to 14 out of my 22 students gaining '1st Class Honours' in their degree program! One student ran after me on my final teaching day to thank me for all the help I gave her that year and they were all highly appreciative of my attending their graduation when all of their other lecturers didn't attend!

Poor work culture
Lack of efficient management and operations resulting in high turnover. Limited career progression opportunities and no strategy for staff well being. Most staff work hard for benefit of students, others more interested in numbers and bums on seats.
