Course Overview

On this course, 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.

*** Please note, if you would like to do both this course AND Cycle Mechanics (Maintaining Your Mountain Bike), the second course will cost 200 pounds ***

Fees

£45.00

Course fees are per year for full-time & degree-level courses, and per course for part-time courses.

The current full-time & degree-level fee information is related to the 2020/21 academic year and is subject to change before the start of the course. Fees for 2021/22 will be updated in the Spring Term 2021. There may also be additional costs associated with the course.

You may qualify for financial support to cover the cost of a government-funded qualification up to and including Level 2, if you:

  • Receive an eligible means-tested benefit e.g. JSA, ESA or Universal Credit
  • Have an annual salary of less than £17,004
  • Are aged 16-18 on 31/08/20 and are not studying at another school/college
  • Are aged 19-23 on 31/08/20 and do not already have a Level 1 or 2 qualification
  • Have a household income under £25,000 and are in financial hardship

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. Please speak to Student Services for more information.
