At Newbold you start at 10 am on Monday, you have 1.5 hours for lunch plus two half hour breaks. The best rooms are st Catherine's worst are still Paul's. Every week you need to work one longer day, that's a 7pm finish. Your class will choose. No mobiles whilst on duty and no bags in class. Finish 12.00 on Friday. That's it anything else you want to know just ask.
That's fab thanks 😊 really excellent advice, anything you'd recommend to Take? Iron? Notebooks? Pillows? :slbg:

Evening duty, so you can qualify for the unsocial hours during POELT

Currently in wk 5 at newbold. Its is enjoyable, however if u come here expecting to work hard then you will do ok.

In all you've two exams 12 workbooks and various assessments you need to pass. Facilities are good and the staff helpful.
