The Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Road Safety Partnership is hosting a ‘train the trainer’ course to equip road safety teams to help Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) develop their skills with regard to ‘client-centred learning (CCL)’, in light of the DVSA’s new Standards Check.
The two-day ‘train the trainer’ course will be held at Alconbury Driving Centre in Cambridgeshire on 5-6 March 2015.
In April 2014 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 the 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 who become approved service providers, using ADIs from their area to help with delivery. Road Safety GB ensures that course standards are maintained across the country.
Alan Kennedy, Road Safety GB business & operations manager, said: "Four local authority road safety teams – in Durham, North Yorkshire, Nottingham and Birmingham – have already completed the ‘train the trainer’ course and are now service providers, able to deliver the CCL course to ADIs in their areas.
"By delivering these courses locally, road safety teams are forging relationships with local ADIs while generating much needed income that can help road safety functions to stay sustainable."
The ‘train the trainer’ course fee is £250 (+VAT), which includes first year individual membership of the Road Safety GB Academy for the trainer. Once a trainer has completed the course, the service provider (local authority road safety team) is provided with all the necessary presentation materials, back office systems and support to effectively run the course.
