Making Cycling Mainstream covers Planning & Design, Policy & Strategy and Behaviour Change. For each learning stream, there are a variety of levels available from Foundation to Practitioner.
Candidates who complete the Behaviour Change Foundation module will:
understand the benefits of behaviour change towards cycling;
understand the principles of behaviour change;
have a basic understanding of how to apply those principles to cycling;
understand the role of travel planning; and
understand the role of cycle training.
This will be an interactive session including group exercises.
Attendance and participation counts as recognised CPD time.
MCM is aimed at Roads Engineers, Urban designers, planners, local authority officers, RTP staff, Outdoor access staff, community groups, elected members and anyone who wishes to learn more about design for cycling infrastructure. Foundation level is aimed at those with limited previous experience of cycling projects.
