Course Overview

This is a FREE course and you will gain a Level 1 Award in Cycle Mechanics (Maintaining your Road Bike).

This qualification will give you an introduction to cycle mechanics and a sound understanding in how to carry out some basic repairs. It's relevant if you just want to maintain your own bike better or if you want to take that first step to becoming a professional cycle mechanic.

The course takes place at Mapdec Cycle Works: www.mapdec.com

The mountain bike and road bike course are the same qualification: Level 1 Award in Cycle Mechanics. We are unable to source funding for more than one course of the same qualification per student, and as such there may be a fee, if you would like to complete both courses.

Fees

£0.00

Course fees are per year. There may also be additional costs associated with the course (please see the course overview).

Student Finance
Whether you qualify for student finance depends on specific criteria. The main student finance package for full-time students includes a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan for living costs. Part-time students can access a tuition fee loan to pay for your course.

Generally, you will only get student finance if you’re doing your first degree-level qualification. This is true even if your previous course was self-funded.

For further information please see www.gov.uk/student-finance

Access to Learning Fund
The Access to Learning Fund is a non-repayable discretionary fund that gives students facing hardship extra financial support to access and remain in higher education. This can is accessed via the college. Contact Student Services for more information: hello@kendal.ac.uk / 01539 814700
