Fiona Taylor

WHY did you do that? - Lets get to the bottom of this behaviour

In this Workshop Fiona highlights just how problematic driver training conversations can be. With the best intentions, Trainers use conversation to change or motivate a Driver to do something differently. Yet Trainers sometimes find barriers, defensiveness, and get that niggling certainty that Learners are just going through the motions.

John Rogers

Deaf Awareness Workshop

In February DVSA introduced the Deaf Candidate Support Pack, a tool that will be used by examiners when conducting practical car tests for deaf candidates. The pack features Written instructions, cues and visual prompt cards to help examiners communicate with candidated and explain the process of the test. ADI's are being advised to read the pack, so that they can understand what the pupils may experience when taking their test and they are being encouraged to use it for training purposes. It would be especialy useful if deaf candidates are familiarised with the pack ahead of their testand if ADI's can use it during mock tests that are performed with them. You do not need to have a deaf student to attend this workshop.

Dyscalculia – It all adds up

Do you know there's a little known learning difficulty which could affect as many as 25% of people, according to the British Dyslexia Association. Diagnosis are in their infancy, but this learning difficulty affects both practical skills and theory test training. It affects each person differently. Numbers, measurement, time, distance, spacial awareness and memory can be affected. I am Julia Malkin and I am a person with Dyscalculia, who has designed systems and techniques to help instructors to help their pupils.
