Rachael described her time at Sunderland College as a good learning curve as she was able to learn a great deal from her course.

She said:
“I wanted a change in career and with Sunderland College offering a wide range of courses, I decided to enrol.

The atmosphere across the college was great along with the facilities and I was able to socialise and make new friends.

I cannot thank my tutor, Janine Taylor, enough for the support and encouragement she gave me throughout the course. She passed on so much knowledge to enable me to progress onto my dream job.”

Rachael is now working as an administrator for Care at Home.
