Education shouldn’t stop when you leave school at 16, graduate from university, or enter employment, it should be valued as a continual process in which we thrive through learning and self-development. There are many ways to learn and advance your skills to develop personal or professional goals, seek out new career paths or even try out a new hobby – learning never stops, and with TyneMet’s wide range of flexible, part-time courses you can make a difference to your life, whatever your age.

Learning later in life can have many perks, from making new friends at a night class or gaining a qualification to boost your career prospects; part-time courses are a great way to indulge your dreams, interests or intrigues without over commitment. Part-time courses at TyneMet are a flexible, enjoyable way to learn and there really is something to suit all interests – develop new skills, advance old ones or learn something entirely new. If you have a passion for cuisine, TyneMet’s catering courses turn up the heat and if you’re a practical person we have a wide range of courses to develop your trade skills -  beauty, hairdressing, floristry, construction and welding courses and workshops. There’s a plethora of creative courses in art and design to enhance your artistic development. You can also enhance your maths and english skills or reach even higher with a degree level course to totally turn your life around.

Deputy Principal of Curriculum and Business Development at TyneMet College, Audrey Kingham, said:  “We’re really excited to announce a raft of new part-time courses. There’s so much variety and the great thing is the courses can offer the perfect platform to learn something new that you may never thought about doing or always wanted to try!”

With a response in demand for flexible learning, the part-time courses have been exclusively developed for people wishing to access courses at times that suit their lifestyle. Pamela Robertson, Director of Learning Development at TyneMet, said: “The courses are extremely popular as people are able to learn at their own pace in a fun and friendly environment. It gives individuals greater flexibility to learn something around work and home life.”
