Just The Ticket!

TyneMet has been praised for the 'fantastic support' it has shown to a group of Tyneside workers.

Staff from the college's Employer Engagement department have been working with the team at National Express rail ticket call centre in Newcastle.

The operation is still part of National Express even though the company handed back their franchise to run the East Coast main line to the government.

This has led to uncertainty for the call centre staff who deal with ticket and seat bookings over the phone.
