What our students say

  • As a fitness professional who has worked in the industry for a number of years, this course is very beneficial, interesting and informative. The different training methods, practicals and theory have helped me in my business. The course tutor was extremely supportive and knowledgeable. I would recommend this course to anyone who’s starting out or wanting to gain further qualifications.

    Steve Tulip, Personal Trainer & Wellness Coach, Fitness by Stages School of DanceCertificate in Personal Training L3

  • I chose this particular course at TyneMet as I was looking to achieve a qualification in counselling, and this fitted in perfectly with the limited spare time that I had, juggling a busy job and a large family! I would really like to move on to the Level 3 Certificate on completion, with a view to doing the Foundation Degree.

  • My Course is great and being at TyneMet has shown me the steps I need for my future. I am hoping to go on a Football Scholarship in the USA when I complete my course.
