Here are ten tips that you might like to consider when training:
1. Start with the customer and never lose focus on them
2. Your training should apply to the cognitive (thinking), the affective (emotional) and the psychomotor (physical) processes
3. Invent training activities that are fun
4. Keep it simple whenever possible
5. Have great resources - the more the merrier
6. Stay in touch after training - use technology to keep connected
7. Know your facts and be able to dispel the myths
8. Telling is not training - learn to educate the person
9. Learning is the goal - reflect to evaluate your own performance
10. Work to the mantra 'Learner-centred - Performance-based'
The whole purpose of training, instruction and education is to help people learn.
The BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development will help you develop the skills to implement these top ten tips. Here's what your fellow ADIs are already saying about the BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development.
Kevin Graham from Carlisle'So why choose to do the BTEC Level 4 in coaching with Tri-Coaching? Isn't that a good question? I mean why would you spend your precious time and money doing some CPD when you could be out there doing something less boring instead?
BECAUSE YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO!! Since completing my BTEC 4 in coaching just over three years' ago my training skills and business have grown beyond all my expectations.
I am now charging £32 per hour which is £5 more than my local competition. My pass rate has risen to an all time high of 90% and my reputation within the Carlisle area is out there on Google for all to see (try searching for 'Driving Lessons Carlisle')
Oh ... and I smashed the Standards Check with a Grade A too. I believe that all that I have achieved in the last three years would not have been possible without the professional help and support that Graham Hooper and Susan McCormack have given me during my studies and continue to do so as I plan to invest again in the 'Train The Trainer' course.
Call Graham or Susan today and invest in your skills and future today.'
Stephen Philipson from Carlisle'Ok, I'll admit it! I was probably the most sceptical person I knew about coaching in driver education. However after first being curious, I booked the BTEC level 3 mainly due to great recommendations about the trainer in our area. After that I could see the benefits but couldn't fit it in with what I was doing. So, convinced this was the right way to go I booked the BTEC 4. Graham and Susan are great! Very helpful but you do have to work. I'm now sold! My training is changing for the better. Don't leave it too late! Don't wait for the letter from DVSA. Book it now! It will change everything.'
Rob Sefton from York'I successfully completed my BTEC Level 4 in Coaching for Driver Development between 2012 - 2013 and found the course was extremely interesting and motivating with fantastic support from Susan and Graham at all times.
In 2016 I did the TCIT Train the Trainer course and although I have previously worked in driving instructor training it was well worth doing. On this course I got a lot of new knowledge and again support and I am pleased to be part of their instructor training team as I fully believe in their products. Susan and Graham are excellent trainers who have real passion for their subjects and create a fun, friendly learning environment at all times.'
Lee Jowett from Manchester 'I've completed both BTEC Level 4 and the Train the Trainer courses. Both of these courses have been delivered at an exceptionally high standard. Both of these courses have been fun and enjoyable but most importantly both of these courses have added value to my company. Fantastic value for money, helping me grow my business for the future.'
The question is, are you ready to develop yourself and your business and add that extra value that only self-development can bring?
