TABS is working with our members to deliver a series of 4 regional workshops in February 2018, as follows:

  • Bradford  – Tuesday 13th February 2018
  • London – Thursday 15th February 2018
  • Bristol – Wednesday 21st February 2018

The workshops will run from 10.30 (doors open from 9.30 for networking, refreshments and registration) – 16.00 (room available until 16.30 for networking).  There will be an introduction, providing an update on current DfT, Bikeability Trust and TABS news, plus any other relevant regional elements.

There will be 3 main sessions covering:
Getting good outcomes at Levels 1 & 2 – classroom session

  • How NS principles (realistic empowering, positive, progessive, trainee-led training) leads to good outcomes
  • Achieving more active learning/increased riding
  • Using core principles (positioning, awareness and communication) to minimise instructor talking time
  • Working with different ratios / course times – sharing differing practice

Practical session exploring the above  (60 minutes)
Session in 2 groups looking at Level 1 teaching and assessment, then at Level 2 teaching and assessment, sharing good practice

Internal quality assurance
(90 minutes)

  • What is the aim of IQA
  • Understanding the link between IQA and EQA
  • Explore the elements of IQA and the IQA cycle

The workshop will be suitable for both scheme managers and instructors. TABS will review the proportion of instructors/scheme managers at each workshop and try to tailor the agenda accordingly.

There will be a small charge for the workshops to cover TABS costs, of just £50 per TABS member / £80 per non-member.

The training will be delivered by David Dansky (Cycle Training UK – ITO/TABS Board member), in partnership with a local representative(s) in each location.
