What our students say

  • 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 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.

  • I enrolled on the Level 3 Personal Training course after completing my Level 2 Fitness Instructor course with TyneMet. My teacher is very knowledgeable, approachable and supportive and I feel I learned so much above and beyond the course criteria. Guest speakers shared industry expertise, which gave me insight and great network connections.

    Tina, previous TyneMet student, now working at Northernstar FitnessCertificate in Personal Training L3

  • I opted to do this course to increase my knowledge and experience in health and fitness in order to pursue a career in the health sector. The lecturers are very knowledgeable and approachable. Class sizes are much smaller than the norm which allows more interaction with the tutor.
