Cyclewise signs delivery partnership with British Cycling
Cyclewise has been at the forefront of MTB leadership training in the U.K. for almost ten years and we are very excited to announce that we have signed an agreement with British Cycling and will be delivering the new British Cycling MTB Leadership Awards.
Recent changes in the ownership of MBLA which now falls under the auspices of Scottish Cycling, has created a new opportunity for the future of MTB leadership in the U.K. Both Scottish Cycling and British Cycling have agreed in principle to bring the Awards together as a unified governing body award and have committed to working towards this over the coming year.
With our new agreement with British Cycling we have taken the decision to cease delivery of all MBLA training courses and will instead now only be delivering the new British Cycling MTB Leadership Award. We will continue to deliver TCL assessments and MBL assessments until July 2012 after which time we will cease all delivery of the MBLA scheme. After that time please visit www.scottishcycling.org.uk for a list of assessment opportunities.
Inevitably these changes raise many questions for our clients who may already be fully qualified or part way through the MBLA training pathway. Currently no transfer pathway exists between British Cycling and MBLA, however, it is hoped that with the creation of a unified award a clear and easy conversion pathway can be introduced.
In the meantime all MBLA qualified leaders will continue to be recognised by both organisations.
