As a proficiency award there is an in-built motivation for candidates to want to achieve the next level.
This provides a great platform for partnership working between organisations enabling candidates to ‘transfer’ between providers to carry on their learning and mountain biking development with a new provider.
One of the great aspects of GO MTB is that each candidate is given a unique registration number which should be written in the inside of their logbook.
If the candidate goes to a different provider they will not need to start the award again you can issue them with certificates from where they left off.

It can be difficult logistically for each provider to deliver each stage of a mountain bikers development. Some of the barriers could be time spent with participants - especially if you have groups with novices through to experts, qualifications of the deliverers and the number of deliverers each organisation has available.
Working in partnership locally it could be possible for one organisation (such as a school, community club or outdoor centre) to deliver Levels 1 & 2 then offer participants the choices of where they can receive Levels 3-5 (such as local cycling clubs or private mountain bike skills instructors)
