Crowd Control

Students from TyneMet's Uniformed Services course have been taking on the might on Northumbria Police.

The learners were invited to police headquarters in Ponteland to take part in crowd control and prison lockdown exercises.

Although the training was carefully controlled for health and safety reasons it was as close to the real thing as possible.

The students were dressed in police protective helmets as they faced officers with riot shields.

Wheelie bins full of wooden blocks were used as ammunition for the students to throw at the police lines.

DISCERE DOCENDO - To Learn and To Teach

A lot of people think of Latin as a language from a bygone age. But say that to some of the teaching staff at TyneMet College on North Tyneside and they'll tell you something quite different…in English, that is!

Tina Reddel and her colleague Wendy Naylor use Latin every single day.

Tina and Wendy teach Floristry and Horticulture at TyneMet. Recently, they were put to the test when studying for their Level 4 qualification which now makes them two of the most highly qualified teachers in the subject anywhere in the country.
