Chris Thompson, Head of Preparation for Life and Work, TyneMet College, said:
"I am obviously thrilled with the achievement of the students on this course; however, this 100% success rate is also testament to the hard work and dedication of the specialist staff that we have working in our Teacher Training Department.
Access to Teacher Training courses can start at various levels depending on previous experience; staff in the Teacher Training department expertly guide students onto the correct step on the teacher training ladder ensuring that they get the best qualification to suit their needs.
I am also pleased to report that students studying on the Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools have a 100% achievement rate which is above the National Average." (source 1)
Teacher Training entry courses start with Levels 3 or 4 PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector). Successful completion of the PTLLS course can then lead to a Level 5 DTLLS (Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector) qualification.
TyneMet College also delivers the Certificate in Education (Cert Ed), the Professional Graduate Certificate in (PGCE) and the BA (Hons) in Education and Training, which are awarded by the University of Sunderland.
Martin Wright, 46, from Wallsend, studied at TyneMet for two years to successfully achieve his Cert Ed qualification. Martin, who works for Focus Training and Development, delivering the theory side of the Certificate of Professional Competence to commercial lorry drivers, decided to enrol on the TyneMet course to develop himself as a Teacher.
"I felt I needed a challenge and having been in the training industry for several years I wanted to gain a teaching qualification and develop myself as a teacher.
At first I was apprehensive I guess due to not having studied for a considerable while. Once the first few weeks were over I felt more confident and the support from my tutor was second to none, I felt relaxed and really looked forward to my 'college nights'.
I gained a great deal from my time at the College, not only with regard to the qualification but from other learners' experiences. Since finishing the course, I have been promoted at work and now have the opportunity to pass all the great ideas and knowledge I gained over the two years to teacher/trainers at my work."
