Together Cycle Confident and BikeRight! train 100,000 people a year across multiple cycling disciplines from our office bases in London, Manchester and Liverpool. We work with riders. We work with Cycle Instructors. We work with bikes. We work with organisations. All with a singular goal of getting more people cycling.
Be Confident Group is a Recognised Delivery Centre with 1st4sport and along with the Bikeability Trust is working towards consistent training provision across the whole country. The qualification of cycling instructors is therefore an important part of Bikeability scheme quality control. All registered Bikeability instructors must hold or be preparing for the 1st4sport Level 2 Award in Instructing Cycle Training. Cycling Instructors with National Standard Instructor (NSI) status acquired under previous instructor training arrangements may continue delivering Bikeability but must register for assessment for the 1st4sport award before 1April 2024.
If you represent a Bikeability scheme, a grant recipient or Bikeability delivery provider we have a team of fully qualified tutors ready to deliver the L2AICT course at a venue to suit and we can tailor the course to requirements. For example as a 5-day course or split over two weekends. We also deliver the Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) route to the L2AICT. Our approach to this process is to offer as much support to instructors as possible - we want to keep their knowledge and experience in the industry. When instructors register for the RPL route they attend a Bikeability Trust approved induction session. We are the only RDC to offer this session to support instructors. We can provide group bespoke training - please get in touch for more information.
We have specific CPD courses that are approved by the Bikeability Trust and can also work with clients to address the CPD requirements of your instructors delivering an annual package along with assessment and support for their development plans.
As Bikeability providers we recognise that the Bikeability Trust is increasing its requirements around annual renewal and Internal Quality Assurance (IQA). Our experience of preparing for regular EQA visits and provider renewals has given us a deep understanding of these requirements. The consistently high performance of Cycle Confident and BikeRight! in terms of training places delivered and at Bikeability Awards are testament to this and we offer a package of Consultancy services to supports schemes throughout the Bikeability process.
