All participants attending the 2 day Masterclass course will receive MTa Certification and can use the 'MTa Certified' logo.
Candidates must be present no less than 95% of the scheduled time.
On the final day of the programme all participants will be expected to facilitate a short experiential task in a small group setting. Participants will need to demonstrate they can apply the MTa principles and approach.
All participants will have the opportunity for a 1:1 coaching and feedback session with Jamie after the programme has been completed.
“Jamie facilitated the event expertly, never judging, always letting the team work out our own strengths and weaknesses and how to develop both. His lesson format was ideal in that it demonstrated the MTa principles piece by piece, in a logical manner. Friendly, professional, aware of candidates' abilities.”
Ft Lt Chris Lawrence, Royal Air Force
