Ignite Success Through Character Education

MPCT Young Leaders is part of a thriving and distinguished Grade 1 Ofsted training provider, which has character education and learning as the principle foundation.

MPCT Young Leaders forms part of the Motivational Preparation College for Training (MPCT), which was formed
in 1999. In the past 7 years, we have been awarded; Ofsted Outstanding in all areas, TES ‘Training provider of the Year’, Times Top 100, Investors In People Platinum, and Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Gold.

By implementing our unique character education syllabus, we support primary schools across the United Kingdom with high quality opportunities to broaden and differentiate their curriculum.

Our pedagogy is based upon active learning, with delivery through a holistic approach to academic and personal development, all of which is delivered in-school through a sustained and progressive Instructor led delivery.

Our friendly Instructors, who hold a wealth of experience in both the military and education sectors, take learners on a journey of intrigue and self-discovery, developing wider skills and attributes from building resilience to cultivating virtues, all underpinned by a soft military ethos.


MPCT Young Leaders is underpinned by three distinct learning approaches; these form the foundation of each programme delivery.

Cognitive Development

Supporting learners to develop problem solving, reasoning, and critical thinking skills through practical contextualised activities. Learners will develop confidence in the application of leadership, to promote skills and experience in decision-making and effective judgment.

Personal and Social Development

Developing learners’ understanding and practical application of leadership and communication. Through scenario based delivery, learners discover the importance of group interaction and teamwork, which allows learning to take a fun and challenging path. Learners see firsthand success of commitment, communication, social cohesion, and the importance of respect.

Happiness, Health and Wellbeing

Supporting learners to develop an understanding
of the contributory factors involved in achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, particularly the impact of food and nutrition on health and wellbeing, and the skills to adopt healthy behaviours. Learners will explore how to deal with challenges, understand anxiety, and the importance of developing a positive mindset to support mental resilience.
