Caitlyn described her time at Sunderland College as supportive and encouraging. For her, the staff and the positive environment at the college made her experience thoroughly enjoyable.

“My lecturers helped me throughout my studies to ensure that I achieved my maximum potential and taught be to believe in myself.

The courses I studied helped to prepare me well to progress onto University, not only did I learn the ins and outs of each subject, but my studies also allowed me to build on my interpersonal skills.”
