Train the next generation of cyclists how to stay safe while out and about on their bikes. Deliver Bikeability Level 1 and 2 training.
Do you remember how much fun you used to have cycling as a child? We want to ensure that children today have the same opportunities and independence that our bikes gave us. Becoming a Cycle Training Assistant enables you to deliver Bikeability Level 1 and 2 training courses to help give them the skills they need to stay safe on the road.
Bikeability Scotland is a government backed cycle training scheme, usually delivered in schools between P5 and S2, which teaches children to cycle safely, to learn how to deal with traffic and that, above all, gets them excited about cycling.
Content covers teaching children basic riding skills for Level 1 and on road skills for Level 2.
This programme delivers both playground based activities and on-road cycling experience to primary school pupils enabling them to gain confidence and competence to use their bikes to and from school and in their local communities.
To deliver Bikeability Level 3, you must complete the Cycle Trainer course.
