TyneMet College hosted a two-day training event for a group of employees from Procter & Gamble (P&G) last month. Delegates were taught how to make a slap up dinner as part of a corporate day.
Over the two days, the group utilised the training facilities at the college, including cookery sessions led by the catering staff to cook a healthy three-course meal and exercise and fitness sessions led by North East Sports Academy (NESA) and Flex Fitness Gym’s specialist coaches in TyneMet’s purpose-built gym and sports hall.
It was arranged by TyneMet Governor, Dr Graeme Cruickshank, who is an Associate Director of Research and Development at P&G. He said: “This event has been a fantastic success.
“Our people are our greatest strength at P&G and we reflect this in commitment to and investment in learning and development.
“There is nothing more important than helping your employees to grow and develop and Corporate Athlete is a key part of this.”
He added: “The facilities at TyneMet College are modern, of a very high standard and they easily accommodated our group.
“We were well supported by the different college departments and having access to their expertise really helped to bring the course to life for our team.” Victor Reid, director of business development at TyneMet College, said: “We were delighted to be able to facilitate the P&G Corporate Athlete event.
“Delivering the course at TyneMet gave us the opportunity to showcase the excellent teaching and learning resources we have. We look forward to working with P&G again and hosting future events for them.”
