"What I enjoy about working for MPCT is the variety of training we deliver to the young people. With the company being very unique, I feel that the students get the full benefit of the different types of delivery sessions we offer. Watching and working with the young people we have in the College, to see them develop and take a journey into their chosen careers is very rewarding."Paul Evans

"While working at MPCT I’ve found that I’ve enjoyed working with young adults and seeing them develop and achieve their goals that they may have thought were not achievable. Since being here I’ve seen the learners leadership qualities grow with their confidence helping them to progress into any job role they may be working towards."Bonnie Simeon
