Military Experience

I Joined the British Army and served with the Royal Engineers from 1996 to 2001, during my service I was mainly based in Germany and completed one tour of Kosovo. My Job role included driving HGV vehicles delivering equipment across Europe, after 3 and a half years I qualified as a physical training instructor to help maintain my regiments' fitness.

"I am now delighted to be part of MPCT. With my experiences both in the Military and in the Prison Service I can help people with all different backgrounds to understand our Education and Employability Skills Qualification which will lead them into their chosen career. I look forward to working with you soon."
