I would recommend MTa kit to anyone...
Simon Owen, RAF High Wycombe Youth Activities Team

The RAF High Wycombe Youth Activities Team have used various types of MTa kit, at numerous schools and colleges, as part of our youth engagement visits. We use the kit with students of all ages, and we always have positive results, receiving positive feedback from both students and teachers. The students learn vital teamwork and communication skills from the activities, which are easy to deliver because of the comprehensive manuals that are provided with the kit.

I would recommend MTa kit to anyone who works with young people and wants to help them develop teamwork, communication and other important skills that will help them while at school and later in life.
