Our Vision and Values

For some, vision is simply the ability to see – to see what is already there.  For Governors and the senior management team at Sunderland College, vision is seeing what is not there, and picturing what can be; imagining the future and knowing what we are capable of becoming.

The 2014 -17 Strategic Plan summarises our vision for a dynamic and high performing college and sets out the strategic ambitions for Sunderland College for the next three years. It captures how we will continue to improve the experiences we provide for our stakeholders and partners, how we plan to be more responsive and engage more effectively with our target audiences.  We aspire to being an outstanding and first choice provider with learners and employers, for all aspects of education and training within Sunderland, the North East and beyond.

The Strategic Plan marks the start of an exciting journey-one that we want the whole team at the College to be part of – one team, with one shared vision, striving for excellence. To view the Strategic Plan please click here.
