Pathway to a better cycling qualification
There are many cycling qualifications available from basic bike skills coaches to advanced track and road cycling coaches, these coaching pathways allow you to obtain a recognised qualification to do what you love most… cycling.
At Cycling Coaches we believe that if you want to coach you should be a qualified coach, obtaining a level 1 cycling qualification can be achieved in a matter of days by simply attending one of the UK’s national recognised courses lead by British Cycling, these courses are developed in line with the UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC) and are aligned to the National Occupational Standards for Coaching, Teaching and Instruction as defined by SPRITO, the National Training Organisation (NTO) for Sport, Recreation and Allied Occupations. So if you live in the UK and are interested in becoming a successful cycle coach, this is the cycling coach pathway for you.
On completion of the level 1 and level 2 certificate courses you can progress on to specific disciplines such Track, Road, BMX and Time Trial coaching qualifications, these courses are more advanced but worth every penny if you are serious about cycle coaching.
