Hi

You mean Study Group / Bellerbys ? They have centres scattered all over the UK and are on site at several universities.

As they are a private provider, it's profits and results first, staff second. The pay is ok but Kaplan is better. They recruit students who will pay the fees - mostly Middle Eastern - and many are not up to the required standards, even though they may have an IELTS cert. So you have low level students in the classes, many of whom can't be bothered working because they already have a job lined up when they get home. Don't expect them to accept any students failing a course that will take them to univerisity - everyone passes, more or less, and students get to take resits at least twice.

I found Study Group to be an excellent employer.
