Why become an instructor?
Inspire, educate, empower. Imagine how it would feel to make a difference every single day. We’re looking to encourage more people to consider a career as a cycling instructor. According to Microsoft, 46% of people want to change career in the next 12 months. If you’re one of them, we’re hoping to persuade you to join us.
To make things easier, we’ve launched a cycling instructor bursary. £500 is available towards the cost of qualification. There’s never been a better time to turn your passion into your job.
We’ve targeted this bursary to the places that need it most. Our Prime Minister wants every child to learn to cycle – and we need many more instructors to make this happen. We also want every child to feel included in our programme – and a diverse workforce can help. Cycling is for everyone, and we want our workforce to reflect that.
Case study: Nathan Wood
Nathan, a 20 year old from Lancashire, works at Go Velo as a Bikeability instructor.
“I initially studied construction, but I didn’t enjoy it because I am more of an active person. When I found out about the opportunity to become a cycling instructor, it sounded perfect for my interests. I enjoy seeing the children progress, get skills for life and have lots of fun on their bikes. I love working with our team of instructors and I am excited for my future career in cycle training.”
