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.

    Jackie WitherellAward in Helping Skills Level 2

  • I really enjoy the course and am excited to better my life from completing the course, the staff are very helpful and want me to achieve my best, I couldn’t ask for more support.

    Sarah BoyleLevel 2 Diploma in Electrical Installations

  • 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.

    Tal Campbell Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Coaching & Fitness)

  • 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.
