Leadership is one of the qualities valued at the Motivational Preparation College for Training (MPCT) and it has been tested to the full over the past year of coronavirus.

As an education provider, the organisation faced all kinds of uncertainties and logistical challenges to keep in step with the government's evolving public health guidelines. In doing so, staff were able to draw on the values that underpin MPCT, which is dedicated to offering opportunities to young people through training and education.

With four distinct provisions (military college, sports college, schools programme and apprenticeship) the college helps teenagers develop their fitness, vocational qualifications and employability skills to help prepare for employment, including rewarding careers in the British armed forces and the sports and fitness industry.

The curriculum was designed to develop students' essential skills, self-confidence and physical fitness. The college operates a roll-on, roll-off joining process with no deadline for applications. Employee benefits at this mid-size business include a holiday package, staff pension, free uniform and childcare vouchers.

MPCT, based in Cardiff, encourages continuous professional development for all its employees through tailored and company-wide learning opportunities, which are supported by a performance management system.

Huw Lewis, the CEO, praised staff for their response to Covid-19, saying: “MPCT's human resources team, together with the leadership teams, have worked tirelessly to ensure that every member of MPCT has received outstanding leadership.

“This leadership has been demonstrated through a vast array of initiatives which have engaged and motivated our people through these challenging times.”
