Level 2 Recognised Prior Learning Route


Converting cycle instructor training qualifications

If you are an existing National Standards Instructor or National Standards Instructor Trainer looking to continue to deliver Bikeability, you will need to convert to the revised cycle training instructor qualification from 1st4Sport. Likewise, if you are a Bikeability scheme operator, then you will need to ensure that your instructor team are up to date in their delivery.

We are offering a Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) route to the 1st4sport Level 2 Award in Instructing Cycle Training, designed to prepare learners for continued employment as cycle trainers whilst recognising existing qualifications and experience.

Course objectives

Learners will be fully supported to progress to the new qualifications by completing a course enrolment session, which will give a clear pathway for completing the qualification. This will include learner registration, access to an e-portfolio, and a PCA within 6 months. We will guide learners through the process and can offer support with exemplar evidence and individualised learning plans to enable you to continue successfully working within the sector.
