East Durham College is happy to announce the appointment of the new head of its sixth form, ED6 Jacqueline Owen.
Jacky has started as the new head of ED6 this week, joining from Sunderland College, where she has taught and managed A level courses for many years.
Jacky will take over the reins at East Durham College’s sixth form as it gets started with its second year.
And Jacky can’t wait to get started in her new role and hopes to help continue to build up this new area of East Durham College and help students to fulfil their potential in their AS and A-levels.
Jacky said: “I am really looking forward to working with the sixth-form students on their journey to higher education.
“The students are in the unique position of having all of the benefits of a small sixth-form such as personalised teaching, guidance and support from teaching staff as well as their own facilities such as the sixth-form common room.
“However, they also have access to all of the benefits of a large college such as the outstanding sports facilities on offer.”
East Durham College Principal Suzanne Duncan believes that Jacqueline is a fantastic choice to help ED6 continue to grow into a great place for students to come and study A-level courses in the East Durham area.
Suzanne said: “East Durham College is delighted that Jacky has agreed to join us and head up our A-level and Access to Higher Education provision.
“Jacky brings with her a fantastic wealth of successful curriculum management experience and she can really help take this area of the College to the next level.
“She has huge experience in supporting students to help them achieve higher grades than expected and also help them progress on to Higher Education courses or into employment.
“And with the large number of courses on offer at ED6 and brilliant transport connections through our free bus service, we really believe that ED6 is an excellent choice for students to come and study on A-levels and Access to Higher Education courses.”
