Event Details



Assessment at Level 3 comprises a theory and a practical assessment.

The theory assessment is designed to enable you to demonstrate your knowledge, understanding and application in certain elements of the award.  It consists of both gateway and scored questions.  Gateway questions must be answered correctly.  Scored questions require you meet a minimum assignment score to be successful.

Your theory assessment will be sent to you by your provider once you have booked on a specific assessment date.  It is usually issued in a written format but we will endeavour to support different formats to support specific learning needs. You will be asked to complete the assessment and return it to the tutor for marking before attending the assessment.

The practical assessment consists of two days of practical application in Level 3 Leadership where you can demonstrate your competence in applying the course content across a wide range of environments.  These include classroom and non-riding elements such as trailside repairs, leading of peers and guiding of general riders who are not known to you in Level 3 environments, both technical and remote.

During your rides you will be assigned specific tasks and sections of a route to lead throughout the two days.  You will be expected to apply Level 3 Leadership methods and techniques throughout the assessment, whether leading or not, to provide a flowing journey and you may be asked to respond to questions or perform the role of a leader at any time.  The tasks, route and group will be presented in such a way to provide opportunities for you to demonstrate competence to the level required and will use a combination of real situations and simulation.

As part of ensuring competency, a proportionate level of pressure may be applied to reflect the circumstances a Level 3 Leader may find themselves under.  The tutor will facilitate your assessment throughout the day to also encourage an environment of continuous learning. They will support all learners to understand where their personal skill set meets the qualification requirements including explaining where and why, if it is not yet at the required standard. All learners will be provided with personal action plans for future development after the assessment.

The British Cycling Mountain Bike Leadership Level 3 assessment consists of a formal two-day practical assessment and a written assignment.

At WyeMTB, we conduct our Level 3 leadership assessment in the heart of the Brecon Beacons.
