Skills, training and knowledge for sustainable public transport

It is hard to thrive in a world that puts social mobility and environmental improvement projects at the back of the queue when dishing out funding for innovation.

That’s why we’re launching the first community-owned public transport academy in the UK! Go-op Learn will train new drivers, new transport planners and new energy specialists to bring our transport network into the modern day, and take it on into the future.

Anyone can become an investor in Go-op Learn – and we particularly hope to hear from small investors who live in and around the Upper Avon Valley (Frome, Melksham, Bradford on Avon, Chippenham). To find out more about what is involved, as well as reading the business plan and other documents available to download on this website, you will need to request a copy of the share offer document and application form.
