TyneMet students impress at Fifth Fusiliers Open Day


Oct 5, 2016

TyneMet Uniformed Services students were invited to attend an open day for the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers at their Battalion Headquarters on the Quayside in September.

The students were up and at it facing an Assault Course Challenge, where they impressed the crowds by demonstrating their finesse. They took part in several activities against local colleges and cadet forces.

Our students were up against others from Bishop Auckland College, Newcastle College and two cadet teams. Thanks to their sheer grit and determination, TyneMet students finished in second place!

Marc Donkin, Uniformed Services teacher at TyneMet said: “The day was a great success giving the students an invaluable insight into different roles available within the Army. This event contributed to build upon strong links already made with the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and weas thouroughly enjoyed by all the students who attended.”

The Assualt Course Challenge included exercises such as mud crawl nets, under/over bars and rock climbing, which all contributes towards their training they receive at TyneMet in preparation to join the Public Services.

The Uniformed Services course at TyneMet is the perfect stepping stone into careers across the Police, Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Navy. You will be in the best place to begin your training in a field where communication and excellence is the key to success.
