Cycling Australia training course provides fun and skills for teachers

Andrea Smithson
City of Albany

The City of Albany recently held a Cycling Australia School Teachers training course, which provides teachers with the skills and capabilities to offer bike education to their students.

Seven teachers attended the course, which was facilitated by experienced instructor, Mark Hudson. It was a really practical day, with lots of time on the bike to put the skills learned into real life situations.

It's going to be great to see where the schools take things from here - watch this space!

Hi Andrea - a great capacity building activity. And welcome back to the City of Albany for 2019! Great to hear you had 7 teachers involved - how many schools were they from? You have received 50 points automatically for correctly linking this story to the Bike skills workshop activity.

Hi James, the teachers were from 7 different schools - 4 with some previous involvement with YM and 3 completely new. Great to get that capacity within the schools, rather than having to find external people to deliver (which is always challenging in the regions).
