Whether you want to become an instructor for the first time, or you’re already an instructor looking update your qualification, you should make sure your training comes from a recognised delivery centre (RDC).
An RDC will provide cycle instructor training to an official 1st4Sport accredited level.
1st4Sport has developed the Level 2 Award in Instructor Cycling Training in partnership with Bikeability, the national charity for the Government’s cycle education programme.
We love cycling, and we want to help more people get involved in it. If more people become qualified cycle instructors, this will help others gain the skills and confidence they need to get hooked on the cycling habit.
This includes both adults and children.
We’ve got over 10 years’ experience delivering Bikeability courses and adult cycle training.
With our team of seasoned cycle tutors, we take a friendly and professional approach to training, tailoring our instruction to meet your individual needs.
The Level 2 qualification can lead to paid or voluntary roles, providing cycle training to groups of adults or children.
You’ll be able to show you meet the national standard for cycle training, and you could be providing training in a variety of settings, such as schools, sports clubs and leisure centres.
Training isn’t just for beginners. If you’re already a Bikeability National Standard Instructor (NSI), then you’ll need to register for the new existing instructor qualification before March 2024.
We can travel to a location of your choice, if there’s a minimum of five people attending the course. Or you can come to a location of our choosing.
We’ve got a calendar crammed with courses, where you can book online, but if you can’t find a date or location to suit you, please get in touch. We’re flexible.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to your team for the training my son has been given at school for riding his bike on the road. He’s a year 5 pupil and is now so confident at riding on the road, he goes to school every day on his bike. Thank you again!
My son is in year 11 and did the course. Over lockdown him and his friends cycled miles all over the countryside and still do. They had the extra confidence to explore and plan ahead. Their maps are generally online, but all went on to do Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award. This is not isolated. Many parents said this is wellbeing at its best. No phones, fresh air and enjoying the countryside through exercise.
