Having a difficult time in my life and come out the other side I decided that I wished to help others in similar situations. I have been given the "Tool Kit" for life and this course is teaching me how to use it. My aim is to complete the course and move forward to the L3. My long term goal is to do the Foundation Degree and then hopefully the Honours Degree after which I would like to gain employment working in the field of substance misuse. Under the guidance of an excellent Tutor, (Rob McGinley), the work we do is challenging and exciting and gives massive potential for personal growth and development. Jackie Witherell
Studying at Tyne Met has allowed me to focus solely on my favourite subject - Sport! Ciara Fisher
Choosing a Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching has provided a wide range of learning opportunities along with supportive learning from a variety of skilled tutors. This is enhanced by TyneMet's excellent facilities. Andrew Choumanidis
I opted to do this course to increase my knowledge and experience in health and fitness in order to pursue a career in the health sector. The lecturers are very knowledgeable and approachable. Class sizes are much smaller than the norm which allows more interaction with the tutor. Paula Cramman
