Become a Cycling Instructor with Cycle Leeds

Become a Cycling Instructor with Cycle Leeds

We’ve a bumper programme of cycling activities happening in Leeds this year and we’d like to expand our team to help deliver it all!

We will be running a National Standard Instructor Course in conjunction with the Cycling UK on Monday 5th – Thursday 8th February 2018 at Heart in Headingley Leeds.  

The course will cost £420. However we will be implementing an ‘Earn Back Scheme’ for those who can commit to delivery on behalf of Cycle Leeds. i.e. we will guarantee you sufficient hours to pay back the cost of the course. We will also mentor you to become fully accredited, pay for a DBS so you can work in Leeds schools and pay for first aid training if required.

Please note that instructors generally work three days a week for us in term time 18.5 hours a week and the work is seasonal; less training during December and January and during school holidays. There is an initial 6 month probationary period during which the rate of pay is £10 per hour plus paid holiday (In total equivalent to £11.21 per hour). Following successful completion of the probationary period the pay increases to £11.03 per hour plus paid holiday (In total equivalent to £12.36 per hour)

The role suits people who are flexible and do not rely on cycle training as their sole income.

Please contact us if you would like to sign up for this course, as you will need to fill out an application form to work for our organisation or get in touch if you have any further questions.

 The closing date for applications is Friday 26th January 2018 at midday.
