About Angus College


What is it like to work for Angus College

Leadership
Leadership
The College operates an open door policy and all staff have the right to request an individual meeting with the Principal, any member of the Executive Team, own Curriculum Manager, any cross-College Support Manager or other senior members of staff. This policy gives individual staff members the opportunity to raise and discuss any issues of concern relating to his/her post or the College in general. The Principal has a very down to earth personality and always has a very visual presence around the College. He is often seen around the College chatting to staff and students and has also on one occasion been seen serving up chips in the canteen!
