Become a Cycle Training Instructor - learn how to instruct cycle training to groups of adults or children

With this qualification you will be able to deliver the National Standard for Cycle Training in England and Wales. Whether in a paid or voluntary capacity in a variety of settings including schools, sports clubs and leisure centres.

In line with the national standards, this course comprehensively covers the theory and practice of teaching across all levels and age groups to ride safely on road, as outlined by the Department for Transport.

Following qualification learners can progress on to the Level 3 Award in Developing Cycle Training Instructors.
