Instructor Training

Few experiences can match the fulfilment of helping someone learn to ride with confidence. We can help you train to become a cycling instructor. We also have opportunities for enthusiastic qualified trainers.

Qualifying as a Cycling Instructor

Cycle Training Wales has worked closely with Agored Cymru to create a Level 3 Award in Cycle Training. We are proud to announce that this is now an accredited qualification which is regulated by Qualifications Wales.

Launching in 2018, this course is split across three modules:

  • Cycling Theory: this will equip you with detailed knowledge of recognized cycle training standards, legal requirements for cyclists,  and best practice guidelines.
  • Risk Management: this covers all aspects of risk managements for cycling instructors, including risk management, safeguarding, and basic maintenance.
  • Delivery: this covers management, communication, and pedagogical skills required by cycling instructors in a range of contexts.

This course has been designed to correspond closely to all requirements of the UK National Standards for Cycle Training 2013, but will be broadly useful for cycle training following any similar framework.

Opportunities for qualified instructors

If you have already achieved provisional or full qualification as a cycling instructor and would like to discuss opportunities with Cycle Training Wales, we would love to hear from you. Equally, if you are an experienced cyclist with an interest in becoming a teacher, get in touch.
