CTC Trainer Award
A modular system enables the Trainer to be flexible around your experiences and desires. The course is made up of a single 'modern CTC teaching practice' course to start with, then a choice of 4 orientation modules which you take to deliver your choice of maintenance, Young Leader, Ride Supporter or National Standard Cycle Instructor courses.
Each course is a single day in length, and for convenience, many are run on consecutive days.
Where you are a CTC Trainer providing, for example maintenance courses and want to go on to provide the Young Leader Award too, then you simply take the Young Leader orientation.
Holding the CTC Trainer qualification enables you to provide one or all of:
- National Standards (Bikeability)
- Maintenance Fundamentals course
- Road and Trailside Maintenance course
- Advanced Maintenance course
- Young Leader Award
- Ride Supporter course
High demand and the desire for CTC courses to be able to be provided from 'within' organisations (or in-house) as well as the publics valuing of CTC's products and services has resulted in the development of the CTC Trainer course.
Your experience and qualifications will be appropriate to the course you wish to deliver in line with the needs of the safety, environment and teaching requirements.
|Modern educational practice||Evidence of teaching, assessing and learning provision over at least 20 sessions|
|Maintenance||Cytech Level 2 or
Equivalent skill and experience as demonstrated during a days assessment by CTC
|Young Leader||Technical Mountain Bike Leader Award|
|Ride Supporter||Technical Mountain Bike Leader Award or
National Standard Instructor and appropriate teaching experience
|National Standard (Bikeability) Instructor||National Standard Instructor and an additional evidence of teaching, assessing and learning provision with adults for an additional 20 session|
In order to achieve the CTC Trainer Award, you will need to:
- Demonstrate competence at all elements of the CTC Trainer Assessment Criteria
- Show you have a learning ethos that marries to that of CTC's modern educational practice
- Maintain appropriate provision in associated teaching requirements, for example first aid, CRB, working with young people, insurance
Where these elements are not sufficiently demonstrated during your orientation course, further assessment at additional cost will be required.
