We are so fortunate to have a wide range of qualified and experienced coaches working across The MTPT Project network who boast experience in both education and business.  Our Community Coaches offer ad hoc coaching opportunities to our members – both 1:1 coaching sessions and more structured programmes of coaching over a longer period.
