The North East Sports Academy (NESA), is designed to offer you the perfect environment in which to develop your sporting and academic skills.
You can become a NESA student in one of the following Development Centre sports:
As a NESA student you can study any of Tyne Metropolitan College's or Queen Alexandra Sixth Form's fantastic courses, and receive up to 10 hours of high level coaching in your chosen sport, all within your college timetable. In addition to this great coaching you will also receive a sport specific strength and conditioning programme from our strength and conditioning coach, free gym membership, free physiotherapy and a subsidised NESA sports clothing pack.
Our partnerships with Team Northumbria, Newcastle United Women's F.C, The Newcastle Eagles, The Newcastle United Foundation, North Tyneside Council, local amateur clubs and Sporting Governing Bodies offers NESA students a real opportunity for progression, both in their academic studies and in their Sport.
NESA Steering Groups made up of representatives from our partner organisations will meet regularly to discuss the progression of the individual Development Centres, and ensure that your best interests are looked after.
March was a very a busy and very successful month for many the NESA students at the College. Some of them made TyneMet history by being amongst the highest number of students to ever represent the College and the North East region at the British Colleges Sport (BCS) National Finals at Bath University.
