New Instructor Qualifications

Our range of CPD courses refresh and develop knowledge of key areas of the National Standard. They are targeted at both new and seasoned instructors and are a great opportunity for Bikeability providers who want to create an excellent team, develop reflective instructors, and improve delivery quality.

We work closely with many Local Authorities and independent Bikeability providers, providing initial instructor training, CPD courses and advice. If you run a Bikeability scheme, why not partner with us and see how we can develop the quality of your scheme? For more information on our CPD courses please visit our web page or get in touch.
