Lincolnshire extend Bikeability instructor team

Outspoken Training have been busy working with Lincolnshire County Council to deliver a 4-day National Standard Instructor (NSI) course in Lincoln.

The latest recruits were keen to know what it takes to become a cycling instructor, and how much fun and enjoyment they would get from delivering Bikeability cycle training to primary school children. The answer? More than you can imagine!

The theory and classroom learning gave the participants an understanding of the National Standard outcomes and appreciation of how Bikeability is helping children and adults become more confident in cycling, leading to more journeys being made by bike.

I’ve always wanted to share my knowledge and enjoyment of cycling to others, this is an exciting time for me. The course was relaxed and informative, and Outspoken really know their stuff, I really enjoyed the course and will be putting what I learnt from Stuart to good use”

- Mark Waller, New National Standard Instructor

The course included plenty of time for practical learning, giving them the opportunity to develop their teaching skills through delivering their own pre-planned sessions. It was also an opportunity for them to develop their own cycling ability and learn the importance of key skills such as road positioning, hazard perception and route planning.

Stuart Meadows (NSIT) said:

The team bonded from the first morning and worked well together throughout the week to achieve the learning outcomes of the course. I was especially impressed with the level of cycling and confidence they showed in amongst the busy traffic during the Level 3 training. I’m convinced they will be excellent cycling instructors”.

The newly qualified NSIP’s are now beginning to build their knowledge and experience delivering Bikebility to excited children across Lincolnshire. Good luck to you all!
