ATG Training roadshow to head to NI having delivered first Scottish assessments

The Aylesbury Training Group (ATG) has just completed a tour of the northern regions of the UK, delivering Cytech assessments in Scotland for the first time.

On the back of this tour, the group has already set its sights on expanding the roadshow to Northern Ireland in February.

Suzanne Read, the assessor for the week said: “It was a hard week, long days and lots of driving, but made enjoyable by seeing the passion and excellent capability of the mechanics being assessed. An honour to have spent time with some great folks and to be able to issue their Cytech technical two awards in recognition of their hard work and knowledge. I am looking forward to returning again to Scotland and meeting other passionate and capable fellow cycle mechanics.”

Biketrax and Leith Cycles in Edinburgh, Decathlon Braehead, Highland Bikes in North Ballachulish, Billy Bilsland Cycles in Carlisle and Cyclewise Whinlatter all saw in-store staff complete the assessment for Cytech technical two.

Cytech technical qualifications encompass the basics of cycle mechanics right through to dealing with the most advanced and high-tech components and parts. The “assessment only” package gives employers the flexibility to offer staff an industry recognised qualification without the need to attend a full training course. As well as running assessment days at the training centres, ATG can offer in-store assessment days throughout the UK.

Following this success ATG Training will be running another assessment only package across Scotland in the coming months.
