Regional Operations Manager
Hello there! I'm Alex, I joined the MPCT in April 2021 and I'm currently a Training Instructor within the Birmingham college.
A former Lance Sergeant of the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards. I served for 12 years, conducting 3 operational tours in Afghanistan, birthday parades for our Queen and taking part in other ceremonial duties for Her Majesty and members the Royal Family.
Whilst serving, I was fortunate enough to represent the Armed Forces at sport and won a title of Combine Services Light-Welterweight Boxing Champion in 2014.
I was also a training instructor at The Infantry battle School in Brecon, Wales. Delivering a high standard of physical training for Platoon Commanders, Section Commanders and Platoon Sergeants battle courses.
With a massive passion for health and mental wellbeing. I love taking part in sports, relaxing with yoga, lifting weights and ultimately enjoying life and the company of others.
The MPCT has given me a great opportunity to pass on my life experiences, develop the skills have gained in the military and help others with their future aspirations. I couldn't wish for a better job!
Lead Training Instructor
I joined the company in 2020 and have loved taking on this new role as it’s the perfect balance of military and civilian life. Having served in the army for 6 years as a part of the 1st Queens Dragoon Guards and transferred to the Royal Yeomanry Reserve Unit where I still maintain progression within the forces and strengthen my skill set.
I participated in a number of overseas exercises including Kenya, California and Germany in my time as a regular solider. Adventure training and sport was a key part of my time also representing the regiment in rugby, athletics and Nordic skiing.
I see the training programme within the college as key stepping stone into creating stronger more confident individuals ready for all walks of life giving them the opportunity to become capable young adults.

"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."
