I joined MPCT because I want a military related job and believed MPCT would help me to do that. I also want to go to Welbeck Military College and MPCT will help me with what I need to achieve. I get a lot out of MPCT because it helps to increase my fitness as well as increasing my confidence and respect for others as well as myself.

At MPCT I enjoy the activities and the group work we do in class and on physical training. MPCT will help me through school because like I said it increases confidence and I have seen my mine increase in and out of school as MPCT helps me to achieve things and pushes to achieve things I wouldn’t normally do.

I joined MPCT because it will help me with my career choice which is to be a teacher of sport and fitness and look forward to this challenge. At MPCT I get a lot fitter and healthier by following the MPCT’s rules on a healthy lifestyle and I also get a qualification at the same time.

I enjoy the fitness side of MPCT because it is something that I haven’t done before as it is different and I enjoy the tough challenge and have different experiences. MPCT will be good to have on my CV as it will show my strengths of discipline, leadership, teamwork and also shows I have a high level of fitness.

Dennis Franklin

Hello, my name is Dennis I am 15 years old, I have lived in Bargeod all my life until about a year ago when I moved to New Tredegar, but thankfully it’s a similar area in the valleys. I still live at home with my mother, three sisters and one brother, however I do have older siblings that don’t live with me because they have their own families, but it’s still a very busy household as I have two dogs a rabbit and three lizards. My hobbies include boxing, long walks I also like to play on the play station my favourite game has to be call of duty ghost, I like to watch vines on YouTube and listen to music.

I am currently a student at MPCT that is based in the heads of valleys industrial estate in Rhymney, I have been attending here for almost two years after being kicked out of Heolddu Comprehensive School for my poor behaviour, I have changed a lot since then and I personally think it’s because of my time at MPCT and the support I have been given.

I have made a massive improvement academically and even my attitude has befitted, and owe this all to the staff here, especially staff Sullivan who is constantly giving up his time for me, just to help me prepare for things like my ice breaker, its important I get more confident when speaking to a large group, as it is one of the aspects that will directly affect my future, which is hopefully going to be in the British military, I hope to join the royal welsh like staff Sullivan.

Not only this, but staff are constantly pushing me to my limits, especially during physical training and academic work as it will assist me not just in the military but in everyday life.
