Are you interested in becoming a cycle instructor? With good hourly rates of pay, flexible working and fantastic job satisfaction. Nationally qualified Cycle Instructors can work anywhere in the UK, helping people learn how to safely and confidently ride a bike.  







Our Cycle Instructor Training:

We run regular Level 2 Cycle Instructor training courses from our site in Nottingham. Each day will be a full day 8.30am – 4pm and will involve both practical and theory work. There are six places available on each course and they can be booked in individual places or as a block workplace booking. 


We provide training across the UK, if you have a large number of trainees. Please do get in touch with us if you’d like to discuss this option in more detail.


All about the course:


Our Level 2 Cycle Instructor qualification is Ofqual Level 2 accredited and involves the following:

  • some pre-course reading – accessed via an online portal at 1st4sport

  • attendance at the four-day face to face training course (with a short follow up one to one session)

  • completion of some on-line multiple-choice assessments accessed via your 1st4sport online portal (to be completed during the course)

  • completion of some written assessments to be uploaded on-line to be marked (some during the course)

  • delivery of some practical Bikeability sessions (to be witnessed and assessed during the course with the course participants as your trainees)

  • final practical assessment delivering Bikeability


Once you have attended the course and passed the assessments up to but not including your final post course assessment, 


After you've successfully undertaken the post course assessment and submitted all your tasks online, you'll become a fully accredited cycling instructor (passing the final assessment is essential to get the full qualification). 


The full cost of the course is £750.  However, as we have a limited number of Bikeability Trust bursary grants of £500 which may be used towards your training costs, we are able to offer the course at a reduced rate of £250, which is payable in advance of the course start date.

This is subject to availability and we will confirm when you enquire with us. 


Working as a cycling instructor is a great way to be self-employed - and is very rewarding.  There's a massive variety of work on offer, from one-to-one sessions with adults & children, through to school group training, fun day activities, refresher training....and lots more.
