The project offers places up to three days a week covering the health and safety, maintenance, and safe riding of motorcycles.


Skills Centre Plus (

Skills Centre PLUS work successfully with Schools and Academies and the Local Authority to deliver a broader curriculum offer to 13 to 16 year olds and Post -16 students.

They foster a safe supportive environment that enables learners to succeed academically, vocationally and in the workplace.
