Course details

All of our courses are practical and progressive in nature and aimed at 15-18 year olds who may be struggling with their academic studies, have low attendance levels or are unemployed. Group sizes range from one to four students who will have exclusive use of our premises during their time with us. Each course is designed to engage and involve young people in activities around bicycle, motor vehicle repair, maintenance and road safety. Courses are delivered in safe, spacious and professionally equipped workshops.

Our introductory Karts course or Bicycle repair and maintenance course is a compulsory starting point for engagement on to the rest of our courses.  To secure your place click here
