” You get out what you put in.
When I first entered MOT I thought that the programme was way too long. By the time I had reached week 16 I was wondering where the time had gone! I discovered so much about myself whilst on the programme and found that I had skills I never imagined I would have. The support of the Co-ordinator and Tutors was second to none.
