  • The Venture Trust's Change Cycle course

    Created: 22/10/2021

    The Venture Trust's Change Cycle course aims to inspire an interest in cycling for disadvantaged young people and supports the development of their skills and confidence to make their next step into learning or work opportunities.  The 8-week employability service is for young people aged 16-24 who are not in work, education or training, facing long-term unemployment and disadvantage or potentially at risk of (re-)offending or anti-social behaviour.

    During the course, each participant will: learn about building their own bike and bike maintenance, as well as be taught cycle and road safety. The participants of the course will be given the tools to strengthen personal and employability skills, receive certified SQA and Bike Mechanic training and combine all of this learning and experience into a “fit for purpose” CV. All participants will create a personal learning and career development plan before completing a 4-week work placement or a series of work experience days, motivational talks, career Q&As and the recruitment process from local and national businesses.  

    Change Cycle supports young people to get their lives on track and realise their potential. The medium of cycle plays a key role in inspiring these young people to develop skills and have an active lifestyle.

    The Trust is now recruiting for its next Change Cycle course. Please e-mail Alice Heywood - [email protected] - to get involved in the course.
