  • A historic moment for Painting and Decorating Apprentice

    The North of England is steeped in the rich history of the Roman Empire, which over 2000 years ago was the largest Empire in the world. The North East was perfectly situated as a fort for defence. In fact, Wallsend derives its name from the end of Hadrian’s Wall. The much loved museum in Wallsend, Segedunum Roman Fort, Baths and Museum has been undergoing an extensive restoration to bring back to life the replica Bath Works which will once again open its doors to a community deep-rooted in Roman antiquity. Bringing the building back to its former glory, TMC Apprentice Leon Dalton who is employed by Tynemouth Decorators Ltd (subcontracted by Kier North Tyneside in partnership with North Tyneside Council) has been involved in the project to renovate the BathWorks, once the epitome of Roman luxury.

  • A fisherman’s tale – talented artist showcases work at Old Low Light unveiling

    Proudly gazing out to sea, a historic masterpiece sits firmly on the North Shields Fish Quay, beginning its life as a lighthouse, the Old Low Light was a beacon of safety to fisherman in days gone by, guiding weary boats full of their fishy bounty into the harbour; having often spent days in the treacherous waters of the unforgiving North Sea. The building has now been pain-stakingly transformed following years of neglect and the re-opening of the Old Low Lights, which houses both modern and traditional art, and requested TyneMet College’s Creative Studios’ HND student and local artist, Michael Smith to exhibit -  ‘Salt Water in the veins’ illustrating the tales of fisherman.

What our students say

  • I'm enjoying learning new things in each of the lessons and I am very excited to start on weight management and nutrition. After I have finished my degree I am hoping to get into the profession of working with obese children. All of my tutors are lovely and I feel very comfortable talking to them about any problems I have.

    Kelly DancerFoundation Degree In Exercise, Health & Fitness

  • 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.

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

  • I chose this course as I really want to help people and after suffering years of domestic abuse myself and getting help I know how difficult that can be. I love the course even after one session as it’s so relaxed and its really inviting with everyone eager to learn its really blown me away how interesting it’s all going to be. Looking to the future I hope to pass levels 2 and 3 and then move on to degree as it’s something I feel very passionately about.

    Rebecca ArkleCertificate in Counselling Skills L2

  • 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.
