You must hold valid safeguarding training to teach Bikeability.

You should refresh your safeguarding training every three years.

We will accept any certified safeguarding course. Talk to your training provider to discuss which course they recommend.

The NSPCC has a free introductory course that takes just 10 minutes to complete. Please note this is not a certified safeguarding course, so you will need to complete a separate course.

We recommend the following courses from the NSPCC. Use the code BIKE20 to  receive a 20% discount.

The NSPCC safeguarding training technically expires after one year (you cannot access the training material after this time and you will receive an email to inform you). Please note that the training material is not necessarily changed yearly, only as and when needed, so the content of training undertaken in year one can still be relevant by year three and therefore can be renewed every three years as per the Bikeability Trust’s requirements.

Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

Bikeability is for all. In England, 15.9% of children have special needs or disabilities. We want all children to be able to access our cycle training. It is important to familiarise yourself with our inclusive delivery guide. The course will give you the skills and confidence to teach children with special educational needs or disabilities to cycle.

All Bikeability instructors who started their qualification before 1 April 2024 must complete our SEND e-learning, available on your Link profile. If you started after 1 April 2024, the SEND training is included in your course e-learning.
