Sadly, it is clear to anyone involved in further education in the Manchester area that there is something wrong with the way in which staff are treated and managed at MANCAT.
There is a fine line between "strong management" and bullying, which senior managers appear not to understand.
I find the sending of a letter signed by so many senior managers to The TES suspicious in itself, and it suggests to me a regime that has a certain management style.
There appears to be more importance attached to quoting outside bodies rather than the views and feelings of lecturing and non-teaching staff.
If such a letter had been sent by mainstream staff, it would have had more credibility, but if a letter arrives now it will just reinforce what many of us believe about the style of management at MANCAT.
