About the Course

Are you looking for a rewarding and active career?  Becoming a Cycle Training Instructor could be for you!

Developed in partnership with The Bikeability Trust, the 1st4sport Level 2 Award in Instructing Cycle Training is designed to prepare learners for employment as a Cycle Training Instructor, specifically working to, and delivering, the National Standard for Cycle Training.

The Plymouth School Sports Partnership aim to empower everyone (young and old) to become confident, safe cyclists.   

Team work and professionalism are very important in the role of a Cycle Instructor.  You must be a confident and experienced on-road cyclist.

The Level 2 Award in Instructing Cycle Training is a very practical course that involves considerable time on bikes.  Any experience of teaching or coaching young people and adults would be beneficial, but not essential.

You will need to complete an online e-portfolio of units, deliver a minimum of 72 hours core Bikeability training, and pass a final practical assessment (PCA).

The Level 2 Award in Instructing Cycle Training is made up of the following mandatory units:

  • Unit 1: Understand the role and responsibilities of the cycle training instructor
  • Unit 2: Plan cycle training and assessment
  • Unit 3: Deliver cycle training and assessment
  • Unit 4: Reviewing cycle training and assessment
  • Unit 5: Plan to improve professional practice

We expect most Learners to have successfully completed the course within 6 months of registration.
