Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of employers and lead to nationally recognised qualifications.


Apprenticeships benefit everyone, particularly in challenging economic times. Young people get valuable on-the-job training, employers get engaged and loyal staff and customers get professionally maintained bikes. Better yet, apprenticeships can be completed while you gain experience in the work place.


Activate Cycle Academy offer, until August 2020*, an Intermediate (Level 2) Apprenticeship and an Advanced (Level 3) Apprenticeship.

*A new 18 month Level 2 Apprenticeship Standard (ST0622) will replace the old framework from August 2020. Read more here...
