Everyone is a teacher's pet at Eastleigh College, because all staff can feel indulged. The Hampshire further education college runs pampering days in aid of charity, and its discounted in-house Red Carpet restaurant, Essence beauty salon and travel shop are open to all 23,000 students and 404 employees. People can even get their cars serviced at the motor vehicle workshop. Staff have a lot of fun (a 78% positive score) and feel a strong sense of family (72%). Annual awards recognise the teacher and team of the year and staff support two nominated charities, Cancer Research UK and the Teenage Cancer Trust. Lecturers earn just over £33,000 a year, with a final-salary pension and on-site crèche — a rare benefit. Meanwhile, people can work off any stress with free use of the on-site gym and fitness classes. eastleigh.ac.uk

My Manager

82% of staff agreed

I feel that my manager talks openly and honestly with me

Managers have an open door policy, which really works and "walk to job”, ensuring that staff see them and are able to talk to them. They set key performance indicators and targets for their staff which are negotiated and closely monitored and amended as necessary. Recognition is therefore given to the work expected of that member of staff. The workloads are negotiated and revisited at least twice a year and are also scrutinised by the Senior Management Team to ensure that there is fairness and transparency. Every manager has 1:1 meetings with the staff in their teams weekly, which provides opportunities for issues to be raised. Following the Communication and Consultation Group Meeting, managers have an "Onward briefing" with their teams which involves open discussion and consultation where staff openly express their views which are then taken back to the Communication and Consultation Group. They express thanks publicly and privately when staff perform well and the Senior Management Team is copied in on these communications. Annually an award is presented to the College Team of the Year and Teacher of the Year which are valued enormously.
