Cycle Systems to help shape City and Guilds future

Training outfit lends its expertise to qualification and signs exclusive new partnership with Magicalia
Publish date:

Cycle Systems has been working alongside other City and Guilds providers to develop an industry standard in mechanical training.

To date, drafts of Level one and two are circulating among the training providers, with a Level three standard draft currently in the works.

Sean Lally, from Cycle Systems Academy, said: “As more people move into the training market, the new City and Guilds qualifications will become the first choice for them. We wanted to pass on our expertise in shaping this qualification, alongside other bike industry experts, and to help define what we foresee becoming the industry standard in mechanical training.”

In an unrelated move, Magicalia has signed an exclusive deal in which it becomes a technical partner with Cycle Systems. The move sees the publisher making good use of the Academy’s online training material, extending it to a further 400,000 viewers monthly.

The publisher’s James Hamilton said: “Magicalia is absolutely delighted to be working with Cycle Systems Academy throughout 2010/11 and is looking forward to bringing its expertise on bike maintenance to our users.

“With the undoubted influence of the internet on our daily lives, we both believe that easy-to-find, easy-to-read, digital-based ‘how-to’ is what cycling enthusiasts truly need when researching how to repair a bike.”

The latest upload at discusses bleeding and adjusting a variety of brakes and is aimed squarely at trainee mechanics.
