Become an instructor

You don't need to be a cycling expert to become an instructor...

Bikeability Scotland instructors play a hugely important role in getting kids into cycling, thereby encouraging them to choose a healthy, environmentally-friendly, and fun mode of transport. 

There are two qualifications you can get to deliver Bikeability Scotland - the one-day Bikeability Scotland Instructor course for delivering levels 1 and 2, and the four-day Cycle Trainer course for delivering all three levels.

How to become a Bikeability Scotland instructor

  • If you're a volunteer (e.g. a parent of one of the pupils), please visit this page and contact the appropriate person in your local authority area.
  • If you're a member of school/local authority staff, please contact your local authority co-ordinator and ask to attend a course.
  • If you'd like to teach Bikeability Scotland at an independent school (either as a member of staff or a volunteer) or in a community/non-school setting, please contact Cycling Scotland directly at

Anyone delivering Bikeability Scotland in schools, either on a voluntary basis or as part of their school/local authority job, will be able to train as an instructor free of charge.
