Nicola described her time at Sunderland College as life-changing, supportive and positive. She chose to study access to higher education as she wanted a career.
“The course I studied was interesting but challenging which I needed after a 12 year break from education.
The college is very welcoming with a friendly and warm atmosphere.
Deciding to study at Sunderland College has changed my life. I now have a career rather than a job and I can still study while working so I am always learning.”
Nicola progressed to university to study a PGCE and PCET, she then returned to Sunderland College as a full time member of staff lecturing in English and Maths.
Maths and English are everywhere! They are important life skills that will help you to achieve your best in your studies and to progress to your dream career. A GCSE Maths and English qualification could be the difference between being accepted onto a university course or getting a job promotion.
