For Bicycle Education Instructor participants.
Participants are referred to the document “Victorian Curriculum F-10" which sets out what every student should learn during their first eleven years of schooling.
Although Bicycle Education locates easily into the "Health & Physical Education" Learning Area, Traffic Safety Education - bicycle education - is an across the curriculum program.
It would be useful to consider the way a cycling program can contribute to achieving some of the learning outcomes in the various strands at the levels relevant to the program.
Participants should also check the extent and nature of Traffic Safety Education programs in their school.
