Justin Edwards lives in a small town in West Wales with his wife and two children. Justin joined the Armed forces in 1993 where he served with the Royal Regiment of Wales for 9 exciting and varied years with Royal Regiment of Wales, which included a number of postings including; Northern Ireland on Operation BANNER, London on public duties and Germany in an armoured infantry role before being posted to the Infantry Training Centre Catterick as a Physical Training Instructor training adult recruits. During Justin’s Military career, he was fortunate to have gained a broad range of experience in roles such as foot soldiering, peacekeeping, covert surveillance, reconnaissance and armoured infantry. Justin is also a keen sportsman and was fortunate enough to not only represent Royal Regiment of Wales but represented the Army and Combined Services teams at under 21 level.
In 2003, Justin became a serving Police Officer within Dyfed Powys Police where he worked within a number of specialist departments such as Roads Policing and Armed Response, policing the whole of South Wales.
Justin then made a career change into the Private Security industry and worked for a number of years as a Close Protection Officer and Operations Manager on a number of private and government contracts in hostile environments.
In 2015, Justin joined MPCT as an instructor at Bridgend College. In 2016, Justin was promoted and given the opportunity of becoming the Centre Manager of Swansea MPCT. This position allowed him the opportunity to develop his leadership skills and a display a passion of ensuring each and every learner had a clear pathway from being part of the college. Justin tirelessly searched for outside partnerships with the same vison and ethos as MPCT that could provide direction and support. In 2018, Justin was once again promoted to Regional Operations Manager of Wales - this position enables him to search out new partnerships and agencies that may or may not be aware of the college and the Learners that we teach.
Justin is a keen cyclist and is currently training to take part in this year’s Ironman Wales which consists of a 2.4 mile swim (3.9km), 112 mile cycle (180km) and a 26.2 mile (42.2km) run.
