Danielle graduated from Sunderland University with BA (Hons) Education and Curriculum Studies. She then combined a job with studying a Level 3 qualification at Sunderland College. She described her time here as enjoyable, excellent knowledge and excellent opportunities.

She said:
“I decided to study at Sunderland College as it was close to home and enabled me to work as well as study. I was given lots of support at college during a difficult time in my life and it enabled me to carry on studying. The campus was very good. The best thing about the course was the mix between study and placements.”

Danielle is now working as a teaching assistant.
