Overall Reviews at University of Pretoria
Assistant Administrator | Pretoria, Gauteng | 03 Sep 2018
Fun and productive
Working with the sports administrators was so much fun, I need a lot from everyone especially about the sport itself.
A typical day at work usually involved managing the kiosk more than other things
The hardest and most frustrating part about the job was not making profit
the most enjoyable part about the job was preparing meals for customers and guest because I love cooking and interacting with them because they were from France, Cameroon, Philippines and Brazil

Easy going culture
Relaxed work environment. Projects have very slow progress but expectations match the work ethic. There is a usual amount of internal politics, not completely debilitating.
ProsEducation/Training, Beautiful enviroment
Consno corporate pressure

Productive, and enhancing environment.
Arriving at the University of Pretoria for work everyday has only been a pleasure. The University provides its employees with ample space to grow, professionally, and most importantly intellectually. Everywhere around you, something is happening, whether it be by the multiple student society's or seminar's hosted by various Departments or the University's high-level events.
One learns that, it is important to learn and explore other intellectual avenues from your own, and that nothing in itself is unique. A multidisciplinary work ethic and conscience is important to succeed in ones tasks.
The most difficult part of the job would be the marking of assignments , tests and exams. The written English language seems to be disappearing with our youth, and that is by far the most challenging element of the job to accept. The most enjoyable part of the job is obviously, teaching and motivating the students to think critically of our domestic and international society, in the hope of creating future leaders.
ProsFlexibility, Dynamic University and campus environment.

Early Childhood Teacher | Pretoria, Gauteng | 18 Apr 2019
I am responsible for research and curriculum development and improvement. I manage the early grade mathematics programme, tutor support programme, supporting at risk students, responsible for curriculum transformation, inclusive education and the inclusivity principles in the curriculum. Management is very support but lacks growth for staff.
I enjoy supervision, materials development, strategic planning for curriculum development and the improvement of quality teaching and learning.
ProsFlexible time - not office bound, work is about deliverable and not being on campus to deliver
Educational Assistant | Pretoria, Gauteng | 20 Jan 2015
productive, adventure and rewarding
a typical day at work would start off by preparations for tutorials for the students, followed by providing the tutorials and marking of assignments and test to recording of marks, providing constructive feedback. Secondly would include students visiting the office for consultation sessions whenever assistance is needed. Day to day lessons varied because of interactions with the students from life lessons to academics. One learned to be more confident, assertive and improve on communication and presentation skills. The relationship between management and co-workers was professional and also one that everyone looked out for one another. The hardest part of the job would be reading and marking of assignments as the number of students was large although it was an interesting read. The most enjoyable part was the contionous interaction with the students and making a difference to the lives of students both academically and in their personal lives.
Prosinteractions with students
Conslong hours of marking
