Our most recent social enterprise, Ablock Bike Shop, opened its doors to the public in 2019. A dual purpose onsite facility, Ablock trains senior VCD students in Cert II Bicycle Mechanical Technology, and provides high quality bicycle servicing and repairs to the local community.

Situated next door to Tradeblock Café, Ablock was designed and fitted by students as a fit for purpose learning space and work environment. Students working in the bike shop build a thorough understanding of bicycle repairs and maintenance, while developing skills in customer service, time management and problem solving. Ablock’s vision is to provide a supported workplace opportunity that our students can use as a springboard into tertiary studies and career pathways.

Ablock is open to the public for bicycle servicing and repairs from Wednesdays-Fridays during school terms. For pricing and quotes contact our team at: victorian.ds@education.vic.gov.au
