Cycle Systems Academy are launching a government funded NVQ apprenticeship training programme.

The scheme, the first of its kind in the capital, allows employers to take on an apprentice and have them train as a cycle mechanic for free.

Cycle Systems Academy is the brainchild of Sean and Julia Lally, who in 2007 realised there was an opportunity for a mobile cycle mechanic outfit to service the needs of large organisations. 

The Academy, opened by Mayor Boris Johnson, has trained new mechanics in their City and Guilds accredited course since its inception, including the senior and head mechanical team of the London Cycle Hire Scheme before it went live this summer.

“We are incredibly excited by this new partnership with the National Apprentice Service to offer an NVQ” said Sean Lally.

“People have been asking us for some time whether they can get access to Government funding to train their employees in our qualification. The answer is that now they can.

“Come along and find out how we can help you. If you are a young person looking for a route into a growing trade with great career prospects, or an organisation looking at how you can receive huge financial benefits and free training in tough economic times, then we are waiting to hear from you.”

A launch event for the apprenticeship scheme is being held at 7pm on October 21 at Cycle Systems Academy’s state-of-the-art north London premises: 51 Eagle Wharf Road, N1 7ER.
