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 a member in Go-op Learn – and we particularly hope to hear from people who support our aims and live in and around the Upper Avon Valley (Frome, Melksham, Bradford on Avon, Chippenham).
To find out more about what is involved, you can read our business development plan and other documents available to download on this website.
