Cycle Training Instructors wanted in Kingston-upon-Thames

Postby Jennifer » 29 Sep 2005, 2:05pm

Kingston Council is working towards accreditation to the National Standard for its Cyclist Training scheme. To help us achieve this and to expand the range and frequency of services we offer to residents in the borough, we are looking to invest in the training and development of 12 Cyclist Training Instructors.

The 12 trainees will attend a rigorous 4 day programme that provides new instructors with a comprehensive grounding in how to run a safe and effective cyclist training course. On completion, all participants will be accredited to National Standard and able to deliver cyclist training at Levels 1, 2 and 3 as a freelancer or on a permanent basis.

The course will run over 2 consecutive weekends on 22,23 and 29,30 October 2005.

Who are we looking for?

It is essential that you are able to cycle competently and confidently and have regular experience of a variety of traffic conditions. You should also understand principles of safe cycling and be familiar with current theory of safe cycling and / or express willingness to learn.

It's desirable that you have experience in a teaching, training or instructing role or experience of cyclist training as an assistant or volunteer.

You must also have a love of cycling, a fun and enthusiastic personality and real desire to help adults and children of all ages cycle more!

If this programme and the cyclist training opportunities it presents are of interest to you, please call the Council's Cyclist Training Co-ordinator for more information on 020 8547 5826. Closing date is Wednesday 6 October.
