Olivia Baldock-Ward, Head of Membership & Training at the DIA, will discuss how important it is to safeguard yourself when working with children, young people and/or vulnerable adults. 

Safeguarding is a critical gap in the ADI training process. Indeed we are one of the few training professions not to require mandatory safeguarding training  – yet we are amongst the most vulnerable to safeguarding breaches, given the one on one nature of driver training and the number of pupils being young people or vulnerable adults.

How to expand your driving school

Presented by Mark Born, AA/BSM Instructor Training Manager.
