Military Experience

I joined the army soon after leaving school to become a Queens Royal Hussar. They are an armored regiment who specialize in Tanks. During my time I pursued my dreams of becoming a Physical training Instructor so I could influence and inspire people to enjoy fitness. I travelled many places such as Canada, Germany, Afghanistan and places in between.

"Being a part of MPCT for me is like being part of a family, all instructors and managers share the same passion. Having the opportunity to inspire young people to reach their dreams in life. This is an overwhelming feeling and such a reward to witness, from the point they arrive to the point they leave you know you have made a huge impact and difference in their lives for the better."

Skills Champion

Keara Creed

Date Started at MPCT

August 2014


Since graduating with an FE specialist PGCE qualification from Cardiff University back in 2013, I have worked for schools, colleges and independent educational providers such as Action for Employment (aka A4E) and T2 Apprenticeships. I have taught across ability ranges in subjects such as English, ICT, Art and Maths; although my ‘specialist’ subject is probably English, having started out teaching this as part of a British Council internship back in 2010.

"In my role as Skills Champion, I enjoy working one-to-one with students in order to boost their confidence and help them to overcome their insecurities when it comes to English and/or Maths. It’s surprising how much just a small amount of extra support can do! It also really pleases me when I see learners go onto better things after leaving the college; for example, doing well at assessment days, or getting a job."
