What our students say

  • I chose this course as I would eventually like to work as a counsellor and I enjoy helping people. The course has been enjoyable so far and I have met some great people .We all seem to want to work towards a common goal, Rob has made it so easy to feel relaxed as he is very approachable. I would like to continue onto Level 3 Helping Skills but would prefer the course to run from January 2015 and not September 2015.

  • I would highly recommend TyneMet and the teaching staff to anyone looking to gain extra qualifications - without the help of my Personal Training course, I wouldn’t have had the confidence and enthusiasm to make a change from law to fitness as my career path. The course is way above competitors and has given me the best start in my career.

  • The facilities help me with my course. The sports hall, gym and the equipment on offer is great and this will help me to get some good grades on the course. Hopefully I can then progress to Level 3.

  • I chose this course because I am a passionate person. I enjoy helping people. I get satisfaction when I help someone or direct someone to overcome their distress. In these days we are living in a lot of people both young and old suffer from anxiety, stress and a lot of young people resort to alcohol abuse and drugs trying to overcome their problems. My heart desire is to be a counsellor and help depressed souls. I feel this course will enhance and modify me to be a good counsellor. I know this course will transform and equip me with the knowledge I need to perform my duties effectively.
