  • Think First - NUFC Deliver Powerful Message on Challenging Derby Violence

    Christmas leaves most in a plethora of excitement - the chance to celebrate, catch up with family and friends means for many, the holiday season is the most wonderful time of all. This weekend will see the last derby Premier League football match of the year between neighbouring cities; Newcastle and Sunderland compete, and with Sunderland winning the last three derby matches, tensions will be high. Northumbria Police and Police and Crime Commissioner Vera Baird have launched a new campaign 'A derby to be proud of' tackling football violence and raising awareness that football can be fun and passionate without the hatred. In recognition of the campaign TyneMet invited NUFC Foundation, who are working with Northumbria Police, to deliver their initiative 'Building Bridges' to students.

What our students say

  • Having a difficult time in my life and come out the other side I decided that I wished to help others in similar situations. I have been given the "Tool Kit" for life and this course is teaching me how to use it. My aim is to complete the course and move forward to the L3. My long term goal is to do the Foundation Degree and then hopefully the Honours Degree after which I would like to gain employment working in the field of substance misuse. Under the guidance of an excellent Tutor, (Rob McGinley), the work we do is challenging and exciting and gives massive potential for personal growth and development.

  • I have been inspired by my time here at TyneMet College. I’ve really enjoyed the course so far and the teachers and support staff have been very supportive.

    Kate McNamaraLevel 2 Diploma in Travel & Tourism

  • I enjoy my course because the teachers and support staff are then when I need them and help me to achieve the higher grades. I also really like the different units we study.

    Ismael BambaLevel 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Coaching & Fitness)

  • I chose this course as I really want to help people and after suffering years of domestic abuse myself and getting help I know how difficult that can be. I love the course even after one session as it’s so relaxed and its really inviting with everyone eager to learn its really blown me away how interesting it’s all going to be. Looking to the future I hope to pass levels 2 and 3 and then move on to degree as it’s something I feel very passionately about.
