About the College

Sunderland College is a large, successful college operating from four main campuses across the city. Offering a wide range of training and education programmes for school leavers, adults, employers and internationally, the college has a deserved reputation for quality.

The work of the college has an impressive impact on the local and regional economy. A recent study by EMSI, an economic modelling specialist, highlighted the following key points:

  • Every £1 learners pay for their education yields £4.90 in higher future wages, a return on investment of £444.5m
  • 16.9% additional income per year to the local business community
  • Accumulated contribution of former learners to the regional economy equates £401m added income a year
  • Total added income equal to 0.8% of the region’s total economic output in 2012/13, representing 15,700 average wage jobs
  • Society benefits from an average annual return on investment of 19.6% – for every £1 invested, society receives £5.90
