British Cycling is working in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust (YST) to develop a Cycling Hub Schools Programme.
We are currently working with 12 hub schools whose aims are to:
- Be beacons of best practice in cycling delivery and development in schools.
- Offer participation opportunities in sport, recreational cycling and cycling to school.
- Work in partnership with British Cycling, Youth Sport Trust, schools, clubs and other organisations supporting the development of cycling and young people.
- Develop young people as participants and volunteers in cyclingDevelop a cycling workforce – undertaking workforce development to support delivery, including an appropriate CPD programme.
- Support competition through the School Games and strong participant pathwaysRaise participation levels in cycling by providing clear pathways from school to community.
- Explore relevant strategies to use cycling to drive pupil attainment, achievement and whole school priorities, including targeted cohorts of pupils (eg girls, pupils with a disability).
- Act as advocates for cycling and the lead for other schools in the county area (or wider if applicable).
- Work with British Cycling and Youth Sport Trust on research and development projects.
As part of the Cycling Hub Schools Programme, we are delivering instructor training and continuing professional development courses to support the development of a workforce for School Games Host Organisers (SGHO's) delivering Bikeability.
This training is available at a reduced fee to people currently working for SGHO's or proposing to do so once trained. Applications will only be accepted from candidates who are supported by their School Games Organiser (SGO).
