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.

  • 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.

    Jordan CampbellLevel 2 Diploma in Sport

  • 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.
