Is going to college all about the grades, or should students and their parents consider other factors when choosing where to go for higher education?
<p>Sunderland College has launched a happiness survey in order to answer this question and better understand the needs of its students and their parents or guardians.</p>
<p>The College recently topped the league tables for the third successive year but vice principal for curriculum and student support, Nigel Harrett, is keen to point out offering a quality education is not just about top results.</p>
<p>“It’s vitally important to us that every student who comes to Sunderland College is given the help they need so that they enjoy the experience, learn to the best of their abilities, and leave having achieved everything they set out to, whether that be learning a trade, having a job to go to, or securing a place at university.”</p>
<p>The College Parent Survey 2012 is asking parents or guardians across the city, not just those whose children attend Sunderland College, for their views and opinions on a range of issues connected to education.</p>
<p>The results will be used to shape the range of support and services offered by the College.</p>
<p>To complete the survey please visit <a title=”Sunderland College Parent Survey” href=”http://www.sunderlandcollege.ac.uk/survey”>sunderlandcollege.ac.uk/survey</a>. All those who complete the survey will be in with the chance to win £50 M&S vouchers.</p>
