Patrick Trowse has settled into the position of Director of Education, identifying new opportunities while aligning educational outcomes to BQ’s strategic agenda.
Patrick joins BQ from an educational background, having taught in independent and state schools for more than a decade. He’s also a passionate roadie and likes to get out on the BMX track when he can.
In this highly strategic role, Patrick manages BQ’s educational programs, developing and delivering practical and engaging educational resources in various settings, including schools, workplaces, and the wider community.
Patrick’s passion for creating community-based projects that strengthen sustainable communities is what drives his approach. With a specific focus on education and positive behaviour change, he will continue to get more people riding more often.
He hit the ground running in 2020, creating a suite of face to face and digital resources to assist all those emerging riders who have been hitting the roads, paths, and trails due to COVID-19 restrictions, ‘get up to speed’ with bike safety and etiquette.
He is, however, most pleased to introduce Bicycle Queensland’s Active Communities Together (ACT) bicycle skills and road safety education programs for schools and kindergartens. These programs cater to the needs of all school and kindergarten age students regardless of ability. They align with the Australian Curriculum and Kindergarten Learning Guidelines (QKLG) and reinforce key road safety messages.
Patrick would love to hear what education support you’d like to see. Shoot him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
