Military Preparation College - Children and young people's activities

What we do

The Military Preparation College (MPC) is a unique training college that helps 16-19 year olds develop their fitness, vocational qualifications, and employability skills to help prepare for employment, including rewarding careers in the British Armed Forces.

Each Military Preparation College forms part of a network of over 32 colleges across England and Wales. The unique active learning curriculum inspires students to achieve their personal best, with 50% of every day spent learning outdoors or taking part in physical training.

The MPC curriculum has been designed to develop our students’ physical fitness, essential skills and self-confidence. The college operates a ‘roll on, roll off’ joining process with no set deadline by which to apply, allowing new recruits to join on a weekly basis.
