    Hi - the info we store for school staff is their name and the school email and phone, so my understanding is that this would not require their permission to store - I stand to be corrected though! I'd be surprised though as that information is always available on a school website.

    The cycling centre situation sounds challenging, we aren't in that situation - I guess that's health data so 'special category'?

    Don't know if the following is of any help at all - I'm sure I've still got things to learn on GDPR and different schools seem to have different ideas about it.

    We have built our own online booking and admin but currently our parental consent forms (that include the privacy statement) are not part of it - that is, schools download them from our system and email them out to parents, who send them to the school office. Instructors check them over and then hand them back to the office. Our non-school booking does have online details, but depersonalises it after the training date has finished.

    Our information governance team agreed the following wording on our consent forms if it's of any help to you, I am currently double-checking if it is still robust enough for GDPR:
    "Use of your personal information: the school looks after this consent form. When our Instructors arrive at the school, they will ask to see the consent forms and hand them back to the school staff after having looked at them and before starting their teaching. We use course registers that contain each trainee’s name and the outcomes achieved. We keep completed registers in our office for two years and then dispose of them securely. We never pass personal information on to third parties."

    Hi - what information do you collect that does not comply?

    Perhaps, if you have not already done so, you could make available an explicit policy or other information about how you make reasonable adjustments in line with the published advice on the Bikeability website?

    It would also be good to have the option of using funding to extend core Bikeability training to a wider population

    Thank you for raising this subject. Perhaps this would be worthy of a more formal consultation? Our view is that badge and certificate are good but perhaps not used to their potential.

    As David says it's good that "the person will receive something for taking part". This should be the badge not the certificate. As the OP said, the certificate could be a useful measure of progress against each outcome. This would make the most of the excellent strength of Bikeability in moving away from the woeful days of "pass/fail". For example, the parent/carer of a child trainee might see they need to focus further help on the right turn out (or whatever). The Bikeability certificate could really contribute more to the idea of progression and continuous self-improvement and thereby cycling regularly.

    A few years ago we had an adapted version of the certificate that detailed how the trainee did against each outcome . As part of this, we asked some parents/carers what they thought and they preferred that detail. Whilst the new certificate does state, 'has taken part in' it also says, 'At Bikeability Level X you can:'. I would guess most people would interpret the latter as a pass.
