ATG Training launches new brand identity

Posted on in Cycles News

Activate Cycle Academy, Part of Activate Learning

UK Cytech training provider ATG Training is to become known as Activate Cycle Academy from today. This name change and rebrand is the final piece of the Activate Learning group takeover which began in 2016 and resulted in the old ATG Training headquarters and operations being relocated to Oxford in 2018.

Originally founded as the Aylesbury Training Group back in 1967, this transition to Activate Cycle Academy signifies the full integration of the cycles training business within its parent company, Activate Learning.

To complement the name change, a brand new website has been launched along with new marketing material and staff uniform. Cycles Sales and Marketing Manager, Matt Grant said:

“We are all very excited about our new brand identity. It reflects more accurately where we are today as a training company in terms of being part of the much larger educational group Activate Learning and no longer being based in Aylesbury.”

“Within the greater Activate Learning group we have our own cycle-specific identity, something we never really had at ATG where it was always shared with engineering based training. This new focus on our specific Cytech courses and cycle maintenance apprenticeships will help keep us at the forefront of cycle maintenance training in the UK and worldwide.”

Cytech courses are developed with the industry and accredited by the Association of Cycle Traders (ACT), who manage Cytech on behalf of the cycles trade worldwide.

Reflecting, on how becoming part of Activate Learning in 2016 has helped benefit and develop their training delivery, Grant added;

“The benefits have been huge for us already. The amazing new, purpose-built training workshop in Oxford was a massive upgrade from the old Aylesbury centre, as highlighted when it was selected as the host venue for the final of the last Britain’s Best Bike Mechanic. In April we will also be opening a brand new cycles training centre at another Activate Learning campus, Merrist Wood College, near Guildford. These continued improvements to our training facilities only help to enhance the learners experience whilst attending our courses and ultimately benefit the cycle industry as a whole.”

Operationally, there will be no change to their existing course structure, the training team or service offered – Activate Cycle Academy will continue to deliver the same excellent range of the internationally recognised Cytech courses and cycle maintenance apprenticeships.

The on-boarding and course booking process will be greatly enhanced via the new website, with Grant adding;

ACT “The new website, in particular, will make the whole online process smoother, easier and more straightforward to use with concise, up to date course information and a more streamlined booking and payment system.”
