Following the announcement that the DfT is changing the accreditation process for instructor training providers, Road Safety GB has established a cyclist training task group and will carry out an audit of current cycling instructor training provision.
The audit results will be used to gauge how the change in the accreditation process may influence training provision in the future.
The cyclist training task group has been set up to ensure that Road Safety GB members receive information about, and support for, cyclist training and other related matters. The task group will also seek out and develop new opportunities, particularly for local authority provision of cycle training.
The task group will be posting a questionnaire on the Road Safety GB website in the near future, in order to understand the current situation, how the impending change will affect it, and how best the association can support members.
An email will be sent via the Road Safety GB cascade system, flagging up the questionnaire as soon as it appears on the website, and members are encouraged to complete it as soon as possible.
