Hi Gavin, we incorporate all sorts of things in to our activities:

Expedition planning
Group management
Incident management (eg first aid, mechanical breakdowns)
Navigation
Mountain biking skills
Access issues (rights of way etc)
Enrichment activities on mountain bikes in the Peak District, Pennines and elsewhere

We work with Macclesfield College, Blackburn College, Stockport, Salford, Oldham and many others.

A number of local schools including Hargher Clough short stay school in Burnley where we use mountain bikes to access areas of industrial heritage for a 12 month project with their referred pupils to aid reengagement into mainstream education.

and more.....including bike maintenance training as you mentioned. Andy

Hi Gavin,

I am a trainer and specialise in preparing FE students for work placements and apprenticeships. The programme is called Shaping Attitudes for the workplace, and focuses on Behaviour and Relationships. It is interactive and engaing; using questions, quotes and scenarios to challenge students attitudes towards issues such as time management, ethics, other people's property to mention a few. I have run very successful sessions at Lewisham and Southwark Colleges with Higbury and George Monoux already booked.

You can read more about it here: http://www.divinecommunicationstrust.org.uk/shaping-attitudes/shaping-attitudes/

Nigel Rayner, head of Capita's further and higher education business, examines the results of a recent survey of FE staff.

It was interesting to note that nine out of 10 (91%) FE staff surveyed recently by Capita reported that student numbers in their institutions had remained static or increased since last year.
