IBike Edinburgh Specific Information


Group leader training:

  • All members of the team (including volunteers) who are planning on leading activities in schools must go on 'Group Leader' training organised by the Edinburgh Council Outdoor Learning team- this training allows you to take pupils out of the school grounds on excursions and informs you of the specific risk assessments, forms and other requirements required by CEC to take pupils learning outdoors. Please see uploads section for some materials given out during this training (From August 2022).

Training takes place online at various points throughout the year and takes 2-3 hours. Andrew Bradshaw is the best person to contact to reserve a place on this training.

Framework Agreement: 

In March 2023 the IBike team supported by the business development team in Bristol applied to be put on CEC Flexible Framework Agreement for provision of Sports and Physical Activities for Children and Young People. We were successful and are now on this framework.

A framework agreement is a memorandum of understanding between the Council and providers. It establishes the terms of awarding contracts during a given period.

The framework sets out the fundamentals of any future contract including:

  • Terms and Conditions
  • Specification
  • Pricing

Being on the framework agreement does not guarantee any contracts.

A contract is created when a need is identified. A contract would be created from the framework agreement documents and includes further defined information e.g. no. of students, dates and location of delivery.
