LIFE AT MPC
How is the Military Academy unique?
There are several things that make the Military Academy unique: our teaching staff, our lesson delivery, and the physical training at the college.
Every instructor at the college has served in the Armed Forces, and all present as strong, consistent role models to their students.
During their service, our instructors recieved exceptional training in leadership and management. This means that our students are learning from the very best. The sense of pride our staff feel in developing, training, and supporting our students has also been recognised by the Times 100 Best Companies to Work For 2017.

You will follow a learning programme, depending on where you live and learn. Regardless of where you learn, you will conduct daily fitness training, weekly military training and citizenship lessons. You will also take part in monthly careers education sessions, supported by military and civilian recruiters and employers.
You will be expected to participate in physical training every day at MPCT. This makes up for 50% of the course at MPCT, and will support learner preparation and progression into the military. Being fit and healthy is an essential part of military life and civilian employment. Daily physical training helps you to concentrate and focus during lessons, and you’ll become more physically and mentally robust.
