About MPCT

MPCT deliver military and sports training to 14 - 19 year old vulnerable young people through government funded work based learning.

Ask an employee of MPCT what their job is, they would say "changing young people's lives". For this reason alone, their people believe that MPCT is great place to work. MPCT is an organisation driven by pure passion for working with young people and this passion has infiltrated every level of every team.

MPCT was formed in response to the founders previous employment in the army where he was a recruiting sergeant. His role included helping young people join the armed forces. He identified that some young people were falling at a hurdle, be it they weren't fit enough, lacked confidence, lacked basic employability qualities or a combination of all three. A joint venture was initiated with Government funding whereby a course was developed to enhance the identified areas.

People are selected to work for MPCT based on values that instil and support their mission, which is 'Changing the lives of young people'.

MPCT have an 'Idea Generation' project, this project was introduced to capture all the great ideas that staff suggest. All they are required to do is fill in the 'Idea Generation' form, stating their idea and how this could be shared across MPCT. This is then discussed in a senior leadership team meeting. If the idea is passed as an idea that could be shared across the company or used within a specific department, the individual is rewarded with a £100 cash bonus and recognised by the MD in the company wide weekly bulletin.
