National Standard Instructor Course proves to be a big hit

Many people choose to become a National Standard Cycling Instructor because they either have a love for cycling or love teaching. Whatever the reasons there is no doubt that the job role is both satisfying and rewarding as you witness trainees develop skills and confidence on their bikes, some for the very first time.

Six new instructors have been enjoying the 4-day National Standard Instructor course in Cambridge and have successfully achieved their NSIP qualification. This will enable them to deliver Bikeability Level 1 and 2 training to pupils in Primary schools across the region over the coming months. What an exciting time for them!

The NSI course is a mixture of theory and practical sessions and introduces the participants to the National Standard Levels 1, 2 & 3, giving them valuable knowledge and experience in skills such as:

  • Communication
  • Session planning
  • Site selection
  • Risk management
  • Safeguarding

 

The practical sessions are fun but challenging and encourages the participants to stretch themselves out of their comfort zone to truly appreciate the feeling many trainees experience when riding on the roads for the first time.

“The course was challenging but very rewarding. Stuart made the 4 days interesting, fun and delivered at a good pace, thanks”

The team at Outspoken Training wish each one of them a successful career in helping others build knowledge and confidence in cycling, leading to more journeys being made by bike.
