Cycle Instructor 01

Haddenham Cycle Training is one of the few Cycling Instructor Training Organisations recognised in the UK by the Department for Transport.

HCT will be providing Instructor Training Courses in September 2015, offering participants an opportunity to become a Fully Accredited Instructor, or an Assistant Instructor.

The course will run over four full days with breaks for tea/coffee and lunch.
The dates are: 5, 10, 17 and 20 September.
First three training days are in Haddenham, Day 4 will take place in Thame

Day 1 focuses on Bikeability Level 1
Days 2 and 3 concentrate on Bikeability Level 2
Day 4 covers Bikeability Level 3

It is essential that candidates attend all four days, as they are continually assessed.

Trainee Instructors must bring a bike and helmet to all four days of the course and be able to ride confidently to Level 3 (see National Syllabus).

As long as trainee Instructors meet the required outcomes, they will be awarded provisional National Standard Instructor status at the end of the course.

In order to achieve full accreditation, instructors must set up and run some training, which will be assessed by one of HCT's mentors.

The cost of the course is £600 per person, to include four days training, course materials, tea/coffee, registration with the DfT and up to two post-course Assessments at a school or workplace of your choice.

It is also possible to do a two-day National Standards Assistant Training Course but this only teaches you up to Level 2 and you cannot run any courses by yourself. The cost of this is £300.
