We have been informed that the Highland Council Road Safety Team are able to offer a free training session on either the 5th or 6th Febuary 2018, in Inverness for volunteers interested in delivering Bikeability to our pupils here at Smithton. Training sessions take approx. 5 hours (9:30 – 14:30) and the exact venue will be decided subject to demand and confirmation.
The course is designed for parents or other community volunteers who are interested in delivering Bikeability Levels 1 & 2 to school pupils P5-7. Volunteers attending the course will be guided through the skills and competencies required to deliver bike safety training to the national standard of Bikeability. There is a large practical element to the course and new volunteers should be reasonably confident cyclists, provide their own bike, helmet and safety clothing.
If you are interested or know anyone else who would be, please contact the school office to inform us of names and e-mail addresses of volunteers, and the dates you/they can make, by the 23rd January, so that we can establish demand and send out further details/ confirmation..
