Eight driving instructors from Durham and Darlington have become the first to benefit from an exciting new course developed by Road Safety GB which helps ADIs to fully understand ‘client centred learning’ (CCL).
Tony Flory, driver training services officer from Durham County Council’s road safety team, said that feedback from the ADIs attending the course was overwhelmingly positive. The instructors were particularly pleased to learn about how the new standards check for ADIs will be conducted, and reported that the prospect of having the check now seemed less daunting.
They also agreed that client centred learning was most definitely the way forward to improve long term road casualty reduction especially amongst recently qualified drivers.
Paul Watson, Durham County Council’s road safety manager, said: “We are delighted to be one of the first centres to receive approval by Road Safety GB to deliver these ground breaking client centred learning courses.
Our next courses are planned for 29 and 30 September and we look forward to receiving more positive feedback.”
