Leanne described her time at Sunderland College as excellent. She studied the course whilst working full-time and said that being able to study flexibly really helped when it came to managing her time between her job and the course.

She said:
“A friend of mine recommended the college after having a great experience studying here.

My tutor was so understanding, knowledgeable and patient. The college experience and atmosphere was brilliant, the teaching staff go above and beyond to make sure that their students succeed.

A huge thank you to Paul Brown – he is an excellent tutor, our whole class thought so too. He goes above and beyond his job role.”

Leanne has since left the job she was in and is now a successful self-employed massage and beauty therapist.
