What our students say

  • 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.

  • I've really enjoyed my time at Tyne Met so far and I like how the staff treat us more as grown-ups!

    Connor TilsonLevel 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Performance & Excellence)

  • As a fitness professional who has worked in the industry for a number of years, this course is very beneficial, interesting and informative. The different training methods, practicals and theory have helped me in my business. The course tutor was extremely supportive and knowledgeable. I would recommend this course to anyone who’s starting out or wanting to gain further qualifications.

    Steve Tulip, Personal Trainer & Wellness Coach, Fitness by Stages School of DanceCertificate in Personal Training L3

  • I chose this course as I would eventually like to work as a counsellor and I enjoy helping people. The course has been enjoyable so far and I have met some great people .We all seem to want to work towards a common goal, Rob has made it so easy to feel relaxed as he is very approachable. I would like to continue onto Level 3 Helping Skills but would prefer the course to run from January 2015 and not September 2015.
