Its good to see at the end of the course the learners are physically and mentally fit and they all have the right attitude and motivation to succeeded in their chosen careers. It also very gratifying to receive the comments and praise from the learners and their families as they develop and succeed in their chosen careers."

Skills Support Manager

Lisa Price

Date Started at MPCT

August 2011

Experience

 I have been in the training sector for the past 11 years and carried out a variety of roles, which have included delivering NVQ’s for Performing Manufacturing Operations, Business Administration, Customer Services and ITQ. I have managed a centre for 16-19 year olds and been responsible for the delivery of Numeracy and Literacy.

"As a Skills Support Manager and being the person responsible for the assessment of Numeracy and Literacy, I thrive on seeing young people reach their potential with Literacy and Numeracy skills. I see confidence grow, not just in an academic way, but also on a personal level.  It’s good to see MPCT students’ transform physically through the robust program that is delivered on a daily basis and mentally through the encouragement given by all the MPCT staff. Girls turn into young ladies, whilst boys turn into respectful young men. It also very rewarding to see young peoples’ attitudes change on a personal level, from one having low self-esteem, into one having the attitude that they can achieve almost anything, with hard work, commitment and dedication."
