CYCLE VOLUNTEER TRAINING – BIKEABILITY COURSES
This is an initial message to establish demand for Bikeability volunteer training. The Road Safety Unit plans to run free sessions on the following dates: 31 Mar 15, 1 Apr 15 & 22 Apr 15. Training sessions take 5 hours (9:30 – 14:30) and venues will be decided subject to school demand.
New volunteers must attend a Cycle Training Assistant (CTA) Course before delivering Bikeability to school pupils – the course is designed for school staff, parents or other community volunteers who are interested in delivering Bikeability Levels 1 & 2 to school pupil P5-7. Volunteers attending the course will be guided through the skills and competencies required to deliver bike safety training to the national standard of Bikeability. Please note that existing volunteers who have been delivering Cycling Proficiency or who have already achieved the CTA qualification are not required to retrain and should continue to deliver Bikeability at your school. There is a large practical element to the course and new volunteers should be reasonably confident cyclists, provide their own bike, helmet and safety clothing.
If anyone is interested in volunteering please inform us before 136 Feb 15 so that we can put your name forward
ard to hearing from you.
