The four day course covers all aspects of cycle training, especially how to deliver all three levels of National Standard (Bikeability) Cycle Training.

The cost is £549 which includes one free Post Course Assessment in Devon, when undertaken within six months of the four day course.

It is the only professional qualification available for individuals to deliver National Standard Cycle Training (Bikeability). Most instructors who achieve the qualification go on to deliver Bikeability to children in schools, however instructors can train adults too.

The course covers all aspects of cycle training including:

The three levels of National Standard Cycle Training; Bike and helmet check and fitting; Risk assessment; Child protection awareness training; Being an effective instructor; Giving feedback to trainees; Being an assertive cyclist.

Successful? You’ll be awarded provisional National Standard Instructor status (NSIP). At this point you can start delivering Level 1, 2 or 3 National Standard cycle training to groups or individuals or you can start delivering Bikeability training on behalf of a registered Bikeability scheme.

Within six months of being awarded provisional National Standard Instructor status, you will need to undertake a Post Course Assessment. This will be undertaken in Devon (cost already included) by one of our Trainers and will be one observed on-road session, usually training children.

Once you have met the Post Course Assessment criteria you will progress to full qualified instructor status (NSIQ).

CHILD PROTECTION TRAINING – GROUP 2 in Exeter

Friday 29 June 2018 (09:15 am for 09:30 am start and finishing approx 1 pm).

Has it been 3 years since you or your volunteers completed some Group 2 Child Protection Training?  Or maybe you have new volunteers who need the training……..

The Devon Children & Families Partnership (formerly Devon Safeguarding Children Board) approved Group 2 training is an important part of workforce development for any organisation working with children and young people as it is essential to help protect children and young people in Devon.

Target group:  Those who work regularly, or have a period of intense but regular contact with children and young people or with staff who may be in a position to identify concerns and who may be expected to contribute to the assessment of the child’s developmental needs or the adult’s parenting capacity.

Overview:  ‘Awareness in Safeguarding’ is to increase awareness and confidence building in respect of identification, responding, recording and reporting processes involved in child protection. It will also raise awareness of legislation, attitudes & values and blocks & challenges in safeguarding.

There are many benefits from attending one of our structured face-to-face training sessions, namely:-

  • The opportunity to develop your skills with one or more of our expert child protection trainers.
  • A shared learning environment – in which you can learn from others and interact through group work / discussion.
  • Immediate help, support and clarification with your learning.
  • A safe environment, away from your workplace, where participants can ask questions in confidence.
  • Consistently high quality courses (feedback score 98% for quality and overall training).
  • A point of contact should you wish to ask any questions about safeguarding after the event.
