Balanceability is the UK’s first and only accredited ‘learn to cycle’ activity programme for children from the age of 2½ years specifically to help develop confidence, spatial awareness and dynamic balance. The course is delivered by Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Nursery Staff and Sports Coaches. The course can be delivered in PE sessions, after school clubs, small groups or as interventions.
Balanceability Instructor Training is an ‘accredited’ one day course with venues across the country. This training is suitable for Cycle Instructors, Teachers, TA’s or Children's Activity Managers to run the Balanceability course within Schools, Nurseries and Leisure facilities.
The Instructor training day will help Teachers and Sports Coaches to plan, prepare and run the Balanceability programme with confidence.
