The now-annual awards aim to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution made to the learning experience, with voting led by the tutor workforce and British Cycling staff.
British Cycling's Education Delivery Manager, Robbie George, said: "2021 has continued to present significant challenge to our course delivery but I’m delighted to end on a high by recognising the incredible contribution our tutors make to the learner experience and journey.
Since April 10th 2021, almost 3,000 learners have accessed face-to-face course across coaching, MTB Leadership and Ride Leadership, whilst 6,000 have accessed elearning and virtual classrooms, including across Officials and first aid. The average score for tutors, from learners, is 9.49/10 which shows how highly rated they are and the excellent tuition they delivery. Our tutors have continued to deliver to their exceptionally high standards during the most challenging of years.
“In addition, the tutors continually feedback to us at British Cycling HQ to enable us to adapt our delivery to keep getting better. We are incredibly lucky to have such an experienced, knowledgeable and helpful workforce, who are a pleasure to work with.
Finally, I am pleased to announce that following a recruitment drive in 2021, 10 new tutors will be beginning their journey with us in 2022. In line with our ambitions set out in Our Ride with regards to working towards gender parity in the workforce, 82% of new recruits are female. We are looking forward to getting them on board and maybe they will be winning awards at the end of 2022”
