There are thirteen modules in the TCIT product. Twelve modules prepare you to become a driving instructor and Module 13 focuses on preparing you to pass the Part 3 test. Each of modules 1 to 12 contain one in-car session and Module 13 consists of 5 in-car sessions.
The in-car sessions focus on your driving technique and help you develop this to beyond a DVSA Part 2 driving standard; your commentary driving skills; and driving instructional techniques, so that you understand all about lesson planning, levels of instruction, core competencies and feedback.
Your trainer will help you track and monitor your progress through the course, completing an evaluation form after each in-car session, thus triggering the next online materials.
Our webinars and videos within the Driving Instructor Training (TCIT) course contain valuable information that cover a whole range of topics.
Communication and Feedback
We look at different learning styles and how to build rapport; different questioning techniques and the importance of asking effective questions; the use of feedback for personal development, and for the development of the student driver; different feedback techniques, such as eliciting feedback and the use of scaling. The overall focus is on client-centred learning techniques with a look at the theory and research that underpins and validates this approach.
Coaching Conversations and Goals for Driver Education
We focus on how to hold a coaching conversation in order to address the higher levels of the Goals for Driver Education (GDE) and how to develop thinking drivers. We use the GROW model to structure coaching conversations and essential coaching skills of Questions, Listening, Feedback, Rapport and Intuition. The GDE framework sets out everything a driver needs to know and do in order to drive the car safely. It shows how the personality of the driver and the context of the journey impact on the choices and decisions the driver makes when dealing with traffic situations and controlling the vehicle.
DVSA National Standards
We look at the DVSA National Standards and show how they underpin the way we teach people to drive and the knowledge and information a driving instructor needs. The standards have a focus on client-centred learning and the new Standards Check that every driving instructor has to complete, assesses that the ADI is giving value for money and ensuring learning is taking place. Many driving instructors find the National Standards confusing and complicated. We help bring a dull topic to life and aim to leave you with a clear picture of what you need to know and do in order to address the standards and be an effective and successful driving instructor.
