First speaker confirmed for Young Driver Focus 2015

Tuesday 16th December 2014

Ian Edwards, who has developed two training courses in partnership with the Road Safety GB Academy, is the first confirmed speaker for the Young Driver Focus 2015 conference.

Young Driver Focus 2015, which is being organised by Road Safety GB and FirstCar, will be held at the RAC Club in central London on 15 April 2015, courtesy of the RAC Foundation.

The 50 early bird places were snapped up in a little over a fortnight and more than half of the 150 delegate places have now been allocated.

Ian Edwards is a director of eDriving Solutions and one of the UK’s leading practitioners in developing coaching skills for driving instructors. He holds a Master of Science Degree in Social Research and Evaluation and a Diploma in Traffic Accident and Safety Management.

In the past two years Ian has worked with the Road Safety GB Academy to develop and deliver the Road Safety Practitioner Foundation Course and a Client Centred Learning Course for ADIs.

At Young Driver Focus 2015 Ian will deliver an interactive presentation in which he will explore why the driver education process may not be delivering its full potential safety benefits.

He will argue that what is learnt in driver training often fails to make the journey from the training environment to the real world, because of a “failure of skills transfer”.

Ian’s presentation will set delegates a number of tasks to complete with the aim of maximising the learning experience and audience participation.

The delegate fee for Young Driver Focus 2015 is just £75 plus VAT for Road Safety GB & Academy members, and £125 plus VAT for other attendees.

There is also an opportunity for a small number of organisations to exhibit alongside the conference, and/or to sponsor the event. For more details about this contact Richard Storrs on 07702 564422.
