Young Rider Focus 2019

Venue: Aston Villa Football Club, Villa Park, Birmingham B6 6HE
Date: March 6, 2019 Cost: From £125

Organised by the team behind the established and well-attended Young Driver Focus, this new one-day event for road safety professionals will take a look at the challenge of reducing collisions and casualties among young, inexperienced powered two wheeler (P2W) riders.

There are many who believe the young PTW rider sector is often overlooked, underfunded and under-represented within the road safety community.

Young Rider Focus was conceived following a survey among road safety professionals which confirmed an appetite for a conference focusing on the key issues faced by 16-25 year-old motorcyclists, the highest risk road user group in the UK.

The event will bring together public and private sector road safety professionals from across the UK, who are committed to helping reduce casualties among young riders.

Young Rider Focus will seek to shine a light on the key issues – and to spark debate, interest and importantly, positive action.

ADINJC – Communication Skills Workshop

Venue: Bristol
Date: March 18, 2019 Cost: Members £99, Non-Members £119

The ability to communicate well is the most important skill any ADI can possess.

Communication facilitates human connections, and allows us to learn, grow and progress. It’s not just about speaking or reading, but understanding what is being said and in some cases what is not being said. Consider these quotes about communication.

Communication is a skill that you can learn. It’s like riding a bicycle or typing. If you’re willing to work at it, you can rapidly improve the quality of every part of your life.  Brian Tracy

Communication works for those who work at it. John Powell

Communication – the human connection is the key to personal and career success. Paul J. Meyer

Effective communications starts with listening. Robert Gately

The biggest single problem in communication is the illusion it has taken place George Bernard Shaw

Good communication enables us, as ADIs to communicate effectively and to use language that has a positive impact on our clients. We constantly need effective communication when managing risk on the road where it is vital that our pupil understands our language immediately.

Who is the workshop for?

  • All ADIs who want to improve their ability to communicate well and enhance their skills with their clients
  • PDIs who are preparing to take a Part 3 and newly qualified PDIs who want to improve their skills further
  • Any ADI who wants to learn about 10 essential skills for better communication

What is the workshop about?

The workshop will help you to enhance your communication skills. The workshop will leave you feeling more confident with your clients, their parents or guardians and other people that you come across in this industry. Our expert trainers who are themselves ADIs will be there to help guide and support you throughout the day. Your workshop is an opportunity to meet fellow ADIs and take time to yourself to consider and improve your teaching skills.  It includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day, free parking, a resources pack and CPD certificate and it is held in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Your workshop explores and covers 10 vital skills of communication. This will include:

  • Active listening skills
  • Quality feedback skills
  • Effective questioning
  • Becoming more confident
  • Having empathy with clients
  • Non-verbal communication
  • Being clear and concise

Young Driver Focus

Venue: Royal Automobile Club Pall Mall
Date: May 1, 2019 Cost: From £125

As all road safety professionals know, young drivers are at high risk of crashing when they obtain a full licence and begin to drive unsupervised. As an example, an 18-year-old is at six times higher risk of crashing than their parents and at three times higher risk of crashing than a 35-year-old who has just passed their driving test.

Finding ways of reducing crashes and casualties caused by young, newly qualified drivers is a key challenge for the Government, road safety professionals and private sector organisations such as insurance companies.

Now in its sixth year, Young Driver Focus 2019 will examine current and future thinking with regard to this vital issue, and what is being done now and in the future to improve the situation.

Organised by Road Safety GB working in partnership with FirstCar and the RAC Foundation, Young Driver Focus is designed to be of interest to:

• Public sector road safety professionals – road safety officers, fire & rescue, police and others involved in road safety delivery
• Private sector organisations and individuals with an interest in working in partnership with the road safety profession.

To register interest in attending please contact Sally Bartrum by email and she will add you to the database to ensure you are notified when the booking form goes live.

ADINJC – An Introduction To Coaching

Venue: Birmingham
Date: May 20, 2019 Cost: Members £99, Non-Members £119

What is this workshop about?

Our industry has now moved towards a client centred approach for learning. Pupils enjoy and appreciate client centred learning: They go away from your lessons with awareness and a real sense of achievement. If you ever leave lessons feeling that your pupil could have learnt more or maybe feeling that sense of frustration that the pupil just isn’t improving, then this workshop can help you. A bonus is that having really good coaching skills can leave you feeling less stressed, enjoying your lessons more, and feeling that the pupils are becoming more confident and able to reflect on their own performance. These are skills that all ADIs need in our industry. This workshop is suitable for:

  • All ADIs who want to learn about client centred and coaching skills and how to improve existing ones
  • ADIs who want to update their teaching and advance their current skills
  • ADIs preparing for a standards check
  • PDIs who are preparing to take a Part 3 and newly qualified ADIs wanting to enhance their skills

This workshop is an opportunity to meet fellow ADIs and take time to yourself to consider and improve your coaching and client centred skills. It includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day, free parking, a resources pack and CPD certificate and is held in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our expert trainers are also experienced working ADIs who are there throughout the day to help and support you.

Timings: 9.30am Coffee and registration, 10.00am start and 4.30pm finish
