Road safety teams invited to enlist for ‘train the trainer’ course
The next ‘train the trainer’ course for Road Safety GB’s new ‘client centred learning’ course for ADIs will be held in Buckinghamshire during October 2014.
Three Road Safety GB members – Durham and North Yorkshire County Councils and Nottingham City Council - are already equipped to deliver the new training course, which is designed to help Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) develop their skills with regard to ‘client-centred learning (CCL)’.
Earlier this year the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) introduced a simpler three-grade Standards Check for instructors in order to help learners and their parents identify the best instructors.
Working in partnership with eDriving Solutions, Road Safety GB has developed a CCL course to help the UK’s 40,000 ADIs meet the requirements of the DVSA’s new grading structure.
The course is managed locally by Road Safety GB members, using ADIs from their area to help with delivery. Road Safety GB will ensure the course standards are maintained across the country.
The next two-day ‘train the trainer’ course will be held at Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue’s headquarters in Aylesbury on 15-16 October.
Alan Kennedy, Road Safety GB business and operations manager, said: “The course is designed to ensure that the standard of driving instruction is raised in accordance with Road Safety GB’s charitable aim of improving road safety.
“It also offers the opportunity for Road Safety GB members to generate valuable income by delivering the course in their local area.”
The course was successfully piloted earlier this year in partnership with Buckinghamshire’s road safety team. ADIs who attended the pilot course gave it excellent reviews.
Road safety teams requiring more information or wishing to register interest in enrolling for the course should contact Dave Parkin at eDriving Solutions.
