Executive Summary

This document outlines the underpinning principles and mechanisms which will allow MPCT to achieve its primary aim of attracting 20% more learners each year from 2014 to 2020. This will be achieved by providing access to excellent teaching and learning opportunities for all. MPCT’s Strategic Framework for 2014-2020 sets challenging and inspiring benchmarks for learner recruitment, engagement and outcomes. It is MPCT’s passion and commitment to ensure that every learner achieves whilst under the leadership of MPCT. MPCT has previously achieved exceptional outcome results through the dedication of MPCT employees. Only by the maintenance of these achievements and constantly striving to improve the delivery of training, can MPCT continue to be seen as the trailblazer of Military focused training providers. A core component of MPCT’s strategic priorities is to continue to develop the curriculum in line with the MPCT curriculum strategy, ensuring that the demands of local and national priorities are met. By doing this, MPCT will stay true to its original vision of delivering education that is vocationally relevant. Instruction must be delivered using the very highest standards of pedagogy so that learners are constantly engaged, motivated and educated by outstanding leadership and delivery methods. Ultimately, the success of each college is dependent upon learners being fully engaged in their own development. The success of the strategic framework and the most effective indicators of excellent training and leadership are fundamentally based on MPCT’s Key Performance Indicators. It is fundamental that every learner at MPCT leaves as a far better equipped person than when they arrived and truly live by the MPCT Core Values. Learners should move closer to their own personal goals during their time at MPCT and as a result, they should be happy to recommend MPCT as the training provider of choice.
