Marie described her time at Sunderland College as excellent, confidence building and somewhere she would definitely recommend.

She said:
“The college has a great reputation, the location was fantastic for me to access and there are a wide range of courses to choose from.

The atmosphere was very friendly and welcoming and the facilities are second to none.

It was great to have such a helpful and knowledgeable teacher, the support everyone received was excellent.

I would highly recommend attending Sunderland College if you are like myself, who was stuck in a rut with a job I didn’t enjoy. I am so pleased I made this decision!”

Marie is now working at Silksworth Medical Centre as a medical receptionist, which is exactly the type of job she wanted to progress onto after completing her course.
