With Independent Information, Advice and Guidance, access to an extensive network of teaching staff and industry experts, we make sure you have access to meaningful and significant experiences to help you make an informed choice with your next steps.

The team offers support on your whole student journey, from application to enrolment, and work closely with North Tyneside Connexions to make sure all young people have the same opportunities.


Support for Schools

Our School Liaison Service offers a wide range of opportunities to support schools with careers and progression advice (Our offer has been developed in line with the 8 gatsby benchmarks to support you in developing your careers programme). 

Every school is different, and 100% of the schools we’ve worked with have agreed our team create a personal and tailored service, with most saying ‘First-hand insight into TyneMet and QA courses’ and ‘Committed support for pupils across a range of techniques’ were the most effective.

Our School Liaison Service Team offers:

  • One-to-one independent advice and guidance
  • Assemblies, workshops, career carousels, parent events, tasters and employability skills
  • Bespoke activities specific to year groups
  • Online support including podcasts, live Q & As, how-to videos, interviews with industry experts and LiveChat
  • Information on extra opportunities at college, including how to apply for apprenticeships
  • Progression opportunities
