Change Your Future

With 94.4% of our students progressing to sustained education or employment within 12 months, Sunderland College and Sunderland Sixth Form are committed to helping you Change Your Future.

You could be taking part in a NextGen masterclass with industry expert Stephen Hey (pictured above) to prepare you for your career.

Or completing a work placement with local engineering company Unipres, gaining that sought-after experience to help you secure your first job.

You go on to an amazing future, like Alex Shenton-Parkin, a former Kepier Academy student who studied music at the College, progressed to studying Technical Theatre at East 15 Acting School and is now working as a Production Manager in Australia.

Whether you want to find out more about studying A-Levels at Sunderland Sixth Form, or a technical course at either Bede or City Campus, you can come along, ask questions, speak with staff and students and even secure your place at one of our open events. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure what you want to do, our award-winning Advice and Guidance team are on-hand to give you impartial careers advice too.

There’s so much support available for students too, including bursaries, free meals and free travel.
