Help requested posted on 19th June 2020:
Due to funding issues I am reviewing our scooter training and looking towards charging for it. Do you carry out scooter training? If so do you charge the schools? Do you run scooter courses during the holidays? Any information would be appreciated.

We run scooter training in schools and have charged schools 'per head' for several years. This is now done through our Traded Services system and this year the cost has been £5.30 (We have to increase by standard corporate % each year, hence the odd amount!). Some schools pass this cost on to parents and some use PE funding.

We do provide scooter training (ScootSmart) but train volunteers, usually by talking through the Instructor manual we provide and then they run the courses with the children. Please email me if you want and I can give you more information.

I hope you are well.
Just catching up on emails during a quieter period!
We still run ScootSmart, mostly in schools that take part in the Junior Travel Ambassador or STARS projects. Usually it just means one of us train a few staff in the school to deliver and we provide them with resources and an occasional visit, no charges.
Take care, kind regards Cheryl
