How 'client centred' are you?! This is the industry buzz phrase, and rightly so, because if we can tailor our lessons to the individual needs of our pupils then not only do we have happier pupils, but we get more of them, and ultimately enjoy our work more!
Gone are the days when 'Multi Sensory Teaching' meant shouting at pupils in different tones! Sometimes it seems we are more like therapists and counsellors than driving instructors, having to deal with a range of detrimental emotions. Therefore, who better to turn to than fellow driving instructors who are also psychologists and therapists to gain an insight into that weird and wonderful place.... your pupil's mind!
Do you want specialist techniques to help your nervous pupils? How about understanding the issues faced by dyslexic and dyspraxic students and how to combat them? If language affects behaviour and creates driving traits, how can you help to create beneficial language for your students? We know that our pupils have very individual personalities, so how do you deal with a pupil who is driven by a strong emotion? So often we repeat the same things over and over again, but some pupils just don't seem to 'get it': why do pupils process information differently and how can you help them to speed up the process?
You will discover all this and so much more on our L of a way 2 Pass Accredited Instructor workshop, which can be delivered to driving schools, associations, in small groups, or on a 1-2-1 basis. Please contact us for more information. All delegates receive a Training Manual, Pupil Handouts, CPD certificate and are featured on the website as Accredited Instructors, and will obviously count towards your CPD.
Please note that this workshop is designed for ADIs and PDIs who have completed their training, not to train you to become a driving instructor
