Female coaches invited to join British Cycling's Ignite Your Coaching programme

Applications for female coaches and mentors to be part of British Cycling's Ignite Your Coaching programme are currently open.

Within cycling women make up just one-fifth of the coaching workforce, however things are changing with a 70% increase in the number of trained female coaches in the sport since 2013.

As an extension of its #WeRide women's strategy, British Cycling wants to elevate female coaches by establishing solid support networks of coaches and experienced mentors working together to share knowledge and experience.

The Ignite Your Coaching programme has been running as a pilot since April 2016 and, through working with Women Ahead, has been able to offer mentoring and leadership training to 15 matched pairs.

Now British Cycling want to build on this are looking for more qualified female coaches to join the Ignite Your Coaching programme both as coaches and mentors.

Applications are open until January 27, 2017. For more details visit the British Cycling website.
