After the panoply of delights that is teaching in an FE college, my workload here is a walk in the park. I've been busy this week with my final reports: circling numbered boxes, then adding some pre-prepared suggestion codes (B078 - should attend class more; B004 - should sing English songs aloud) to the bottom of the page. All in all, it took a couple of hours - or about the same length of time as getting a single pre-Entry student enrolled on a course.

I'll miss this job when it finishes. Maybe even enough to come back.
