Training Provider of the Year 2017
We are very proud to have won training provider of the year at the 2017 TES FE Awards. This award celebrates the exceptional performance of independent learning providers. In 2017, the judges felt that MPCT’s “impressive” all-round work stood out.
Since its formation in 1999, MPCT has been “dedicated to offering opportunities to young people through training and education”. MPCT is made up of a number of training outlets across schools, colleges and sports facilities in England and Wales. In 2014, MPCT was rated “outstanding” in all areas by Ofsted. And in 2016, it reached its 10,000th enrolment.
Throughout the academic year, at MPCT we pioneered the use of “physical literacy” as a vehicle to engage students in English and maths programmes. MPCT has set the benchmark for providers across the country on physical literacy, and some universities are also now embedding the approach into their PGCE programmes.
To ensure a positive experience, we provide innovative and active support known as the “MPCT Way” – a holistic approach that blends active learning within a context of physical and personal development, resulting in outstanding impact and achievements. In 2016, the progression rate was 86 per cent.
The judges said MPCT delivered exceptional results for students, and they acknowledged that being graded “outstanding” by Ofsted was “no small task”, given that it required the provider to demonstrate levels of excellence and consistency across all its sites. “A deserving winner,” they added.
At MPCT we have robust quality assurance processes in place and we work closely with all awarding bodies to ensure that we continue to develop high-quality, engaging and contextualised lessons and resources for all of our students. Our qualifications are all designed with employers in mind. MPCT has been recognised for its innovative approach to lesson design and delivery as we trail-blazed the use of Physical Literacy as a vehicle to engage students in educational programmes of English and maths. This has ensured that our students are fit for the society that we live in today. Some forward-thinking universities are now embedding Physical Literacy into PGCE programmes in England & Wales.
