Sunderland College provides a Fast Track Access Diploma beginning in January and ending in June.
This programme developed from a need for adult learners to gain the requirements for university via an intensive programme of study. The Access team, supported by senior managers, developed a suitable programme in 2009 and successfully recruited learners.
In 2012 the decision was taken to recruit and deliver two groups of Fast Track students and in 2013 42 Fast Track students successfully completed the programme. Two groups are up and running again this year.
The continued success, recruitment and popularity of the Fast Track programme can be attributed to the commitment of the tutors and staff who work enthusiastically with the learners to achieve success.
Sunderland College looks forward to continuing the development of this programme which has given an opportunity to a specific group of adult learners to meet their learning goals.
