    Hi, we have a lot of schools demanding additional training for those who haven't meet level 2 and /or refresher training, so that they can go on the end of year 6 bike ride. Does any other schemes have issues with this?
    Schools are not prepare to pay for extra training but are putting pressure on instructors to pass trainees.
    Just wondering if we are the only ones experiencing this.
    Thanks

    Hi, I've heard several times over the past few years that to maintain your NSIQ accreditation with Bikeability an instructor needs to deliver a minimum of 72 hours of training per year.
    However I can find nothing in writing to verify this information.
    Does any know where this information is written?
    Also is there a minimum of CPD training required per year or is that up to each individual scheme.
    Thank you in advance for any responses.

    Hi, we've just done an inventory and have a surplus of 200+ level 1 certificates, if anyone can use them please email liz.hart@darlington.gov.uk. Thanks

    We have always operated an inclusion policy with regards to SEN, but today we received a complaint from a head teacher. The head thinks we should award a level 2 certificate and badge regardless of outcomes met to kids with SEN just to keep them happy and so that they don't feel different when they get a level 1 badge instead of a level 2.
    It was explained that we judge everyone the same and plenty of kids don't meet level 2 outcomes and get a level 1 badge and if we make a exception then the level 2 award becomes meaningless and parents might mistakenly think their child is capable of riding safely on the road.
    The head was angry and accused us of not being inclusive and that SEN's should meet a different criteria for training to get the award.
    Just wondering if other schemes have had experiences like this? What's everyone's opinion should children with special needs meet different outcomes?
    Thanks for your feedback.

    Hi,
    we award the certificates for attending the training course and award the badge for meeting the outcomes. If a student attends the level 2 training but doesn't meet the level 2 outcomes, we give them a level 2 certificate and a level 1 badge. This has left us with more certificates at level 1 than badges, if we purchase more level 1 badges we also have to buy more certificates, which we don't need. Is there any way we can just the badges without also buying the certificates?
    Does anybody else have this problem?

    Thanks for your replies.
