"Trusted partner"

South Tyneside College has been our trusted partner delivering our L3 Team Leader Apprenticeships since 2017, supporting over 30 staff members. We chose them for their exceptional service and strong relationships. The teaching quality has improved staff performance, motivation, and career prospects.

On completion, apprentices now have the opportunity to progress into management roles. The college’s feedback and support have been outstanding, leading to fantastic results with almost all staff achieving Distinctions. We highly recommend them to other businesses seeking a reliable educational provider for apprenticeships.

"High-class service"

We are delighted with the support provided by South Tyneside College for our apprentices. They offer a high-class service with clear objectives, and their top-notch facilities and quality of learning impressed us from the start. The main benefit is the exceptional training our apprentices receive, leading to excellent feedback from them. After qualifying, our apprentices have promising opportunities within the British Engines Group, with continued investment in their development.

We highly recommend South Tyneside College for apprenticeships; their service has been excellent, and communication has been smooth and efficient.

"Outstanding support"

We have received outstanding support from South Tyneside College for our apprentice, Charlie. Her tutor, has been exceptional throughout the course, providing valuable guidance and assistance.

Choosing South Tyneside College proved to be an excellent decision. The benefits of their partnership include weekly classroom training, accessible tutoring, and the convenience of proximity to our location. Their remarkable 84% pass rate and excellent rating further validated our choice.

After qualifying, our apprentice will have excellent opportunities including a potential permanent role within our organisation, further career development, and the possibility of pursuing level 4 qualifications.
