Emma described her time at Sunderland College as successful, enjoyable and knowledgeable. She studied a professional qualification part-time to enable her to change careers.
“I decided to study at Sunderland College as it was local and evening classes were available. The lecturers were friendly and helpful. The course wasn’t too intense and I could apply the knowledge I learnt to my current job role. There was a good atmosphere and great facilities.
My aim is to be a qualified accountant. I originally began studying at Sunderland College whilst working as an assistant manager in a pub with the intention of moving into the finance sector. A job opportunity arose through the college, which I applied for and was successful. I wouldn’t have moved jobs so quickly if it hadn’t been for Sunderland College.”
Emma is now Assistant Accountant at Opsec Security Limited.
