What our students say

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It’s a really fun course; the teachers are friendly and treat you like an adult. TMC has provided me with a great insight into a career within the construction industry.

  • 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.
