East Lothian Outdoor Learning Service are happy to announce a new round of funding from Cycling Scotland. This funding is primarily to further the number of schools, within East Lothian, offering Bikeability Levels 1, 2 and 3, with an emphasis on Level 2. We are also looking to further develop the skills of existing volunteers to secure sustainability throughout the county.
We are now offering Cycle Trainer Assistant Courses (CTA), Cycle Trainer Courses (CT) and a mentoring programme to support the needs of exisiting CTA’s & CT’s.
Cycle Trainer Assistant (CTA) Courses– Cycle Training Assistants deliver Bikeability Scotland training Levels 1 and 2 to school-aged pupils. This is a one day course.
By completing the course you can go on to plan and deliver cycle training sessions using out Bikeability Scotland Resources. In some areas you will receive mentoring and supervision form a Cycle Trainer while you gain experience.
To become a Cycle Training Assistant you should ideally be a competent cyclist and must be a minimum of 16 years old or 18 where working independently.
This course is free of charge, with the exception that all participants will go on to deliver Bikeability Scotland training to children. More Information Here
