Peter Harrison, one of the pioneers in the development of government recognised training within the cycle industry, is to leave Madison for a position with training specialists, the Aylesbury Training Group

‘Shimano Man’ leaves Madison for ATG

Harrison – a keen roadie – will work with ATG’s Alan Finch to develop and implement Cytech to NVQ Cytech.

Harrison will be in charge of training in the North of England and Scotland.

The decision to change the emphasis of training and award NVQ qualifications

is one that Harrison has been encouraging over some time. It provides

qualifications recognised by the Department of Education. The training has

to be carried out by an independent provider and the ATG specialises in the provision of NVQ’s which allows students to access government and

European funding. Under 25 year olds can access the training free of charge,

other ages can benefit from various levels of funding.

Harrison leaves Madison at the end of November.

However, Madison’s partnership with the ATG will expand. Madison has entered into a

sponsorship deal where the company will provide the ATG with Shimano,

RockShox and other brands from their extensive portfolio. Madison will back

this up with technical information and product news to ensure the trainee mechanics

receive the most relevant and latest information available.
