Previous school: Castle View Academy
Nicola described her time at Sunderland College as life-changing, supportive and positive. She chose to study access to higher education as she wanted a career.
“The course I studied was interesting but challenging which I needed after a 12 year break from education.
The college is very welcoming with a friendly and warm atmosphere.
Deciding to study at Sunderland College has changed my life. I now have a career rather than a job and I can still study while working so I am always learning.”
Nicola progressed to university to study a PGCE and PCET, she then returned to Sunderland College as a full time member of staff lecturing in English and Maths.
