What our students say

  • 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.

  • I chose this course as I am a foster carer and wanted to learn counselling skills to help children. I have learned so much about myself as a person throughout the counselling courses leading to the foundation degree and also in the way I relate to others. The staff and the other students make the course a very supportive environment to learn. I love the course and hope to go on to achieve an honours degree. Then go on to counsel children.

  • 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.

  • 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.
