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

Expedition planning
Group management
Incident management (eg first aid, mechanical breakdowns)
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/

Hi Gavin
I'm really sorry. I've been playing around with putting a photo in - not terribly successfully, I'm afraid as I can't reduce its size. (Any tips very gratefully received.)
Promise not to touch it again!

I am a A1 qualified assessor and my background is in policing. Having retired from the police I have tried to continue with assessing but trying to convince employers that my skills can be related to other subjects is virtually impossible. I have had a little bit of work assessing taxi drivers but even though I have done this others will not take me on because I haven't been a taxi driver. Its the same with security, although I have a lot of the basic skills involved and have previously in the police assessed nearly the same units because i haven't been a security guard companies wont employ me.
