This report summarises the views that were put forward in the autumn 2017 workshops and via the online survey, and sets out the key principles for the revisions to be made to the National Standard
The National Standard for Cycle Training (‘the National Standard’) is the series of Outcomes that describe effective cycling and cyclist instruction and contribute to getting more people cycling, more safely, more often.
As the National Standard was last reviewed in 2012 it is now time for it to be reviewed again, to ensure that it continues to evolve in response to changing circumstances.
All the following are within the scope of the review:
- The ‘trainee outcomes’ – the outcomes that trainees demonstrate in training at Levels 1, 2 and 3 of the National Standard;
- The ‘ instructor outcomes’ – the outcomes that instructors must demonstrate as National Standard Instructors;
- The ‘instructor trainer outcomes’ – the outcomes that instructor trainers must demonstrate as National Standard Instructor Trainers;
- The ‘off the shelf’ courses which are used to deliver the above outcomes;
- The outcomes for the Bikeability Plus modules that have been introduced since the National Standard was last reviewed.
The associated Bikeability delivery guidance also forms part of this review.

The input of those within the cycle training industry – instructors, schemes, stakeholders – is vital to this review, so please do get involved!
Other stakeholder organisations outside of the cycle training industry will also have a valuable contribution to make and their contributions are welcomed too.
