Duration: 5 sessions running over a one week period.
Group Size: The children are taken out in groups of 8 (maximum) and are accompanied by two Nationally Accredited Instructors. We can run three groups per day, therefore 24 children per week.
Outcomes: The children cover National Standards Level 1 and 2 Training.
Location: Level 1 training is playground based. Level 2 training is on quiet roads which are risk assessed by an instructor prior to use.
Initially Level 1 is covered. Level 2 allows the children to interact with real traffic, but sticking to quiet roads. By completing Level 2 children show they have the skills to make a trip safely on quiet roads and cycle lanes, perhaps to school.
Session 1: Trainees bikes are adjusted with the children watching and learning. Helmets are fitted. Level 1 Training commences
Session 2: Level 1 Training is completed and re affirmed. Depending on the ability of the group, Level 2, on road training, commences. However if the children require more practice with their basic skills they remain in the playground
Session 3: Level 2 on road training commences / continues. More advanced drills are covered as the trainees skills improve.
Session 4: Level 2 on road training commences / continues. More advanced drills are covered as the trainees skills improve.
Session 5: Level 2 on road training is completed. The aim of this session is for the children to put into practice what they have learnt during the week. Depending on the children progress the children will often go for a long and enjoyable ride with the instructors, leaving them with positive thoughts towards cycling.
