Craig described his time at Sunderland College as informative, supportive and confidence building. After completing his level 1 in business administration, he was interested in a career change and was confident that the level 2 course would provide him with the skills he needed to progress.
“The best thing about the course was that it allowed me to learn on my own terms. It gave me the confidence I needed to learn what was necessary to pursue my career goals.
I liked the atmosphere of the college, of the course, and the group of people that I studied with. I felt like I could study on my own terms and had plenty of support from my tutor.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the course, as it provided a valuable insight into aspects of my desired career that I hadn’t previously considered.”
During the final weeks of the course, Craig interviewed for a new job. He succeeded in this interview and is now employed as an Inbound Operative at Paragon Customer Communications.
