Margaret Lister created MCQ in 1994 with the objective to become one of the most successful training organisations in the North East. MCQ is a modern and competitive

company with Training & Assessment Centres catering for all levels of Vocational Qualifications in Newcastle upon Tyne, Middlesbrough and York. Our motto is "we come to you" and the majority of our training is delivered out in the workplace. MCQ's highly trained staff provide support and guidance for all occupational levels from induction to management. To complement these qualifications a wide variety of short training courses are available to support the building of knowledge and understanding whilst on programme.

MCQ - Mobile Care Qualifications initially focused on the Health & Social Care Sector delivering Adult Social Care and Early Years qualifications, we have now broadened our delivery to include Business Administration, Customer Services and Management Qualifications. This is to service demand from our traditional client group and to support local initiatives to tackle unemployment within young people. Our main funding route is still the Apprenticeship programme and we aim to fully support Employers and Learners and continue to make this programme the flagship of workforce development within the UK.

"Lifelong learning is key - people need to get into the habit of learning, not just  acquiring a good basic education but also continuing to learn throughout their working life. A vital element is a good quality qualification that is recognised and valued by the individual and employer."
Margaret Lister
