Bike Club

Learners will be trained in how to repair a bike including finding and fixing faults. A selection of recycled bikes are ready for you to work on and bicycle maintenance are on hand to help.

All courses are free and travel refunds will be provided to those travelling from within Nottinghamshire. Lunch is also provided for learners on all courses.

What comes next?

Once basic courses are completed, a volunteering placement with one of EVE’s social enterprises can be undertaken where people can further develop their practical skills in a real working environment. All our instructors have had extensive experience in the building and construction industry. You can't beat practical experience when it comes to delivering the very best training.

All learners have the opportunity to attend appointments with an Information, Advice and Guidance worker for support with progression to further learning, volunteering and employment opportunities.
