Train to be an instructor

We run one National Standard (Bikeability) Instructor Course per year, often at the end of the school year. If you would like to register your initial interest for our 2017 course please

The National Standard Instructor course is a four day course) and is 50% practical (on busy roads) and 50% classroom based.

It costs £549(2016 price) which includes one free Post Course Assessment in Devon, when undertaken within six months of the four day course.

It is the only professional qualification available for individuals to deliver National Standard Cycle Training (Bikeability). Most instructors who achieve the qualification go on to deliver Bikeability to children in schools, however instructors can train adults too.

The course covers all aspects of cycle training inc:

Bike and helmet check and fitting, Risk assessment, Child protection awareness training, The three levels of National Standard Cycle Training, Being an effective instructor, Giving feedback to trainees Being an assertive cyclist

Successful? You’ll be awarded provisional National Standard Instructor status (NSIP). At this point you can start delivering Level 1, 2 or 3 National Standard cycle training to groups or individuals or you can start delivering Bikeability training on behalf of a registered Bikeability scheme.

Within six months of being awarded provisional National Standard Instructor status, you will need to undertake a Post Course Assessment. This will be undertaken in Devon(cost already included) by one of our Trainers and will be one observed on-road session, usually training children.

Once you have met the Post Course Assessment criteria you will progress to full qualified instructor status (NSIQ).
