8.4. Safeguarding and Code of Practice
Ensuring the safety of everyone who takes part in cycle training is a top priority. All cycle training should be a positive and safe experience for everyone involved, and no one should experience abuse of any kind. We all have a responsibility to support the welfare of all children, young people and adults – to keep them safe and to practise in a way that protects them.
As a Bikeability training instructor, you have a responsibility to follow and keep up to date with all safeguarding policies and procedures as set out by The Bikeability Trust here.
You must hold valid safeguarding training, refreshed every three years, and an enhanced DBS certificate. You must also follow a Code of Practice for Bikeability instructors that sets out what’s expected.
