Sunderland College has received an award from the city’s 14-19 Partnership for its work with young people.
The college has been given a Sunderland 14-19 Quality Mark Platinum award, which recognises its work as a high performing education provider in the city.
Maureen Earley, Director of Quality and Standards at Sunderland College, said: “The college has worked closely with the Partnership to help establish a common approach across schools, the college and other Training Providers in the city.
“We know that learning is central to the future success of our city and that we can make the greatest impact by working together.
“The college has played a big role in helping to design and develop the 14-19 Quality Framework. Winning this award reflects the very high level of work and commitment from our staff to the standards and values set by the Partnership.”
Councillor Pat Smith, Sunderland Portfolio Holder for Children and Learning City, said: “It is really important that quality learning is available for every young person in Sunderland, and that we share all the resources and expertise we have available to meet their needs which is why the 14-19 Quality Framework is so important. And that is why in presenting this Platinum Award I am delighted to be able to help recognise the achievements of Sunderland College in the work they have done to support young people’s education and training in our city.”
