Do you have experience and enjoy working with children
We are delighted to be working with Balanceability thanks to funding secured through “The Peoples Projects” Big Lottery, to running this 1 day training course which will enable you to plan, organise, prepare and run the Balanceability programme to the necessary standard in order to achieve the stated outcomes. The Initial Training should not be underestimated and we want to ensure you have the confidence and motivation to deliver varied, fun and inclusive Balanceability sessions.
The training is aligned to both early years and national cycle standards and involves an element of pre-learning before the course. We will ensure, as a trainee instructor, you display the ability to teach to this age group and have a firm understanding of why balance and balance bikes are so important in the teaching of riding without stabilisers. At the end of the training day, we will asses you according to a set of outcomes to ensure we are confident you are able to run Balanceability sessions.
- Full & clear CRB or Access NI Certificate
- An understanding of Health & Safety Procedures
- First Aid Certificate (valid for 1 year)
- Knowledge of cycling (able to ride a bike)
- Aged 18+
The course consists of theoretical and practical assessments and a high rate of participation from all instructors is required. Upon successful completion of the course you will be able to deliver the Balanceability programme to children.
If you are applying:
Once qualified, instructors will be in a position to apply to work with us to deliver balanceability to our young children which we would like to have up and running within a month of the course completion. Please do not apply for this course if this is something you are not interested in doing or cannot make this commitment, as we will require a pool of qualified instructors available every Saturday and various dates during the Summer months.
