HAVING read about plans for Huntingdonshire Regional College and its supposed vocational specialist courses, I would like to add a few points from the student point of view.
I have recently taken the 2360 part 2 course for electrical installation. The course was a shambles. We were tutored by incompetent members of their staff, one being a BT engineer, another who stated that the City and Guilds didn't have many questions on magnetism so it wasn't worth teaching it. In fact nearly all the questions were about magnetism. The course was never completed and only four out of all the students taking the course passed the City and Guilds.
We are having assignments marked by a person who is not qualified and in some cases he has overridden the marking of a qualified tutor. Mrs Constantine has failed to address the problems and seems to hide behind all the bureaucracy of the college and governors.
I suggest they get their small house in order before they get bigger and ruin other people's lives with poor teaching and poor courses
