Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award
MPCT is honoured to have received a Silver Employer Recognition Scheme Award from the Ministry of Defence.
The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) rewards and recognises UK employers for their support and commitment towards defence. The scheme includes bronze, silver and gold awards for organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the Armed Forces community and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.
MPCT has always been aligned with military values and has been committed to employing and supporting ex-military personnel. Every operational member of staff at MPCT is ex-military. Many of the staff are also Reservists.
MPCT has been presented with a Silver award every year since 2014. In 2017, not only did MPCT receive an award, but the college also sponsored the Youth and Cadets Award, with Mrs Barbara Hemmings winning that category for her work in youth activities focussing on Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects.
