Matt Goodrich - Divisional Head - Cycle Training
ATG Training has been selected as a training partner for London’s Cycle Hire Scheme. ATG will advertise and select 29 apprentices to work on the London hire fleet.
The apprentices will be attending ATG’s world-class Cycle Training Academy in Aylesbury for ten days in April and will then be assessed in their new roles until the summer. ATG faced competition from numerous London-based competitors but won the business because of its national reputation and stunning facilities.
Another step on ATG’s path to becoming the first point of contact for all things cycle-related. Serco, who are running the London Cycle Hire Scheme, are discussing other partnering opportunities for ATG.
The British Retail Consortium reported for total UK retail sales growth in October with like for like cycle retail sales growth increased to 7.3% in the specialist sector in October, the highest growth rate in the last 6 months and nearly double the 3.8%.
This is encouraging news for the Cycle Training sector, with even more consumers needing to have their pride and joys serviced correctly.
Although not exhibiting on a dedicated stand this year, the Cycle Academy will be in attendance on trade day, loitering in and around the coffee area.
We’ll be pretty easy to spot so please feel free to come and say hello.
