“I originally chose Mobile Team Challenge because of their training design, unique flexibility in accommodating the location of our choice and their superior safety record. I have stayed with MTC because they produce measurable results. MTC employs and trains superior instructors who are able to synthesize and debrief the learning experience in a way that grounds the learning for all involved. MTC is also flexible and creative in working with their clients to adjust or modify a training experience so that it aligns with the organization’s unique cultural or developmental need. I would highly recommend MTC to any organization.” — Christine R. Williams NASA Learning Systems Program Manager
“MTC has developed a model for learning that is light years ahead of any other experiential learning program I have been involved in. We are changing our organization with their training and support! We are grateful for all they’ve done and continue to do. They have certainly had an impact on our organisation and a very significant impact on me in many ways.” — Ken Elstein Leadership Development EPA/ORD
“Your Mobile Team Challenge equipment allows us to provide a great variety of experiences, which can be tailored to specific outcomes for each individual team. When I first saw the equipment I was very sure we could put the equipment to good use and I was correct. The ease of use, portability and wide range of exercise choice offered in your equipment make it one of the best that I have used. Furthermore, the excellent support and feedback from you and your staff are an added bonus to trainers in the field.”

“In order for learning to transfer from training to the work environment it must be experiential rather than academic in nature. This allows the participants to develop ownership in the outcomes and effect the transfer themselves. MTC equipment allows us to provide a great variety of experiences, which can be tailored to specific outcomes for each individual team. The ease of use, portability and wide range of exercise choices offered in your equipment make it some of the best I have used. Furthermore, the excellent support and feedback from you and your staff are an added bonus to trainers in the field such as myself.”

“When first approached by Mobile Team Challenge, who introduced us to a complete system that could successfully address Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship, we invited them to come to Ashmole School to run a one hour demonstration with a mixed group of our pupils.
Within that short period we were amazed to see that through experiential learning all the pupils developed a wide range of core competencies. Mobile Team Challenge not only covers enhanced thinking skills but we also were very pleased to see that experiential learning can be adapted to meet varying
identified needs, such as communication, team building, leadership, motivation & problem solving, etc. We noticed a dramatic change in a significant number of students.
Mobile Team Challenge also has the additional benefits of being able to be used in all of our classrooms as well as sports hall due to its compact nature and ease of transportability. In support MTC has also been specifically developed with full risk assessments carried out for every activity. This is enhanced by specific programming, which will enable all of our teachers to safely run each of the 100+ activities with a very simple training introduction.
Like most Upper and Middle schools we also have limited budgets set aside to develop a number of specific programmes.
Fortunately Mobile Team Challenge offer direct funding support through specific governmental funding schemes for 100% of the cost of Mobile Team Challenge. With this support I strongly recommend you invite MTC to your school to run a demonstration to see for yourself what I can only describe as an invaluable PSHE system for your school.”
Anthony Filby Senior Teacher in charge of Pastoral Curriculum, Ashmole School, Southgate, North London
“This programme is enjoyed by all the children from year Five through to year Nine and it is something they look forward to a great deal. We have organised adventure based programmes for the following reasons:
- To help new pupils coming in to the school get to know their staff and fellow pupils.
- To cover PSHE and Citizenship specifically relating to team work, communication and problem solving skills.
- To organise inter class and inter year teambuilding events.
- For staff training and development programmes.
- To expand the scope and the positive impact and influence that the school has within the local community.
In all my time teaching I have never encountered such an effective programme for interactive learning as Mobile Team Challenge.
