Employment & Skills

Our Employment and Skills programme offers employability and skills training, with a focus on people who face barriers to work.

Employability Level 1

Bikeworks runs a City & Guilds L1 Employability course open to residents aged 18 years+, who live in Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney, and Waltham Forest.

Focused on supporting people with disabilities, long-term health conditions, and mental health support needs, in a friendly and supportive environment.

The L1 Employability course takes place over 4-8 weeks, dependent on your learning needs, usually over two days a week.

One day is spent learning with our friendly and experienced Tutor. The second day is designed to demonstrate the learning through participation at our All Ability Cycling Clubs – these take place in Victoria Park and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, east London.

The content of the course is designed to increase your confidence and skills required in the workplace. Including communication skills, teamwork, health and safety, and more. Mixing practical delivery and learning in a friendly and supportive environment.

Participants will come away with a:

  • Level 1 City and Guilds Employability Qualification
  • Work Experience or Volunteering at our Cycling Clubs
