On Monday 24th - Thursday 27th September students took part in a Bikeability course at the College.

The Bikeability course is focused on Cycling Proficiency for the 21st century and is funded by the Department for Transport (DfT) in partnership with Devon County Council (DCC). The course is designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today's roads. The course offered in Bikeability Level 2 combined a traffic free environment (Level 1) with riding on public roads and gradually introduced our students to essential on-road traffic theory and practice.

In total 19, Year 8 and 9 students took part in the two day intensive course and were assessed on whether they had attained the required level of competence.

This course was a fantastic experience for our students and has really enthused others to take part in the future, so much so that there will hopefully be another Level 2 course for students this year.

All the students who took part in this course will receive certificates and advice regarding their skills and have the opportunity to take part in the advanced level 3 course at the college later in the year.
