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: "Our tutors have continued to deliver to their exceptionally high standards during the most challenging of years.
“I'm pleased some tutors have had their efforts acknowledged by their peers in these awards, but really, all tutors that have delivered a course – or in many cases, courses - this year deserve a prize.
“It’s no easy feat to continue to support the development of our products and delivery to ensure learners can be trained under the tightest of restrictions, and it has really highlighted how lucky we are to have such an experienced, talented and proactive workforce that has risen to the challenge."
