Emergency Rescue Corps – Gozo Malta
MTB instruction were contacted by Emergency Rescue corps with regards to a possible mountain bike training module suitable for their volunteer organisation based in Gozo Malta. The organisation offers additional support to local emergency services by means of instant response via mountain bikes covering urban and off road scenarios.
The logistics offered MTB instruction a real challenge, but working closely with the client a training module was developed covering all aspects of MTB Instruction’s introductory, schools and youth courses to enable the Emergency Rescue corps to deliver their outstanding service to the community professionally and safely. The mountain bike training module was delivered in electronic and hard copy formats with the initial coaching session delivered direct to the client lead and the local volunteers, to enable them to carry the mountain bike training forward for any new volunteers wishing to join the Emergency Rescue Corps.
Youth Inspired – Northamptonshire
Schools and youth projects are key social aspects that enhance and enrich students lives at all levels and MTB Instruction are at the forefront in delivering enhancement programs to this rewarding area.
Personal recommendation led to Wootton Community and Sports Centre contacting MTB Instruction to deliver a week long coaching sessions for their Youth Inspired project. An initial meeting to discuss the Youth Inspired objectives led us to develop a week long course of mountain bike coaching that would enthuse and energize the students who could be from unstable or socially challenged backgrounds, and from many different areas. The course was based on the schools mountain bike training module but condensed into a week long programme. The delivery and positive outcome was truly amazing from the students perspective as we enter our second year of delivering the course.
MTB Instruction have now been asked to organise a more advanced MTB training session for returning students alongside the week long introduction course provided. MTB Instruction take so many positives from these introduction courses, seeing students gel and flourish in self esteem and confidence, leaders emerge that would otherwise go unnoticed; they are inspired along with us.
