Aims of the education working group
  • Key Aspects
  • To develop and implement a training system to
    address the varying needs of staff within Forum
    accredited mobility centres.
  • To explore and develop a professional
    qualification for Driving Advisers

5
Review of the education process
  • The role of the Driving Adviser
  • (core competencies)
  • The need for a validated professional
    qualification for Driving Advisers.
  • Future training options.

6
The Context
  • Skills development within the assessment field
  • Quality assurance/consistency of outcome
  • Need to link competency of staff to the
    accreditation process
  • Improvement in standards across sector

7
The need for training and education
  • The diverse role of the Driving Adviser
  • Most Driving Advisers are either Occupational
    Therapists or Driving Instructors.
  • Are we equipped with the necessary skills?

8
Core competencies of a Driving Adviser
  • Understanding of the musculo-skeletal system.
  • Understanding of the central and peripheral
    nervous system.
  • Understanding vision as it relates to driving.
  • Understanding cognition as it relates to driving.
  • Understanding vehicle control solutions.
  • Understanding vehicle design.

9
Core competencies of a Driving Adviser
  • Understanding ergonomic principles.
  • Understanding normal driver behaviour.
  • Measuring on-road driver performance.
  • Managing on-road risk during assessment.

10
A review of training options
  • Driving Standards Agency - 2-6 week intensive
    training to administer a standardised process.
  • Training within Europe, Australia and America
    various approaches taken.
  • Previous Forum education programme low uptake,
    not flexible, not supported by member centres,
    administration difficulties.
  • Forum short courses valuable complementary
    training but not an alternative. No independent
    validation, no measure of learning outcomes.

11
Outcome of Review
  • There is an essential need for a validated
    professional qualification for Driving Advisers.
  • Any future education programme must be
    meaningful, academically endorsed, flexible and
    achievable by all staff working within driver
    assessment.
  • The future training programme must be implemented
    in conjunction with a standardised assessment
    process and a more relevant accreditation process.

12
The proposed future of our training
  • A validated academic and practical approach to
    study.
  • A 3 stage approach to qualification.
  • Compulsory element of training for all Driving
    Advisers.

13
Problems with the Greenwich Course
  • Volumes
  • Course Content
  • Dependence on key individuals as tutors
  • Marketing to wider industry
  • Administrative problems

14
New Model
  • Based on a Competency framework
  • Many competencies not specific to our sector -
    we just concentrate on those that are.
  • Up to 50 of content can be credited via schemes,
    such as APEL - experiential learning
  • Local delivery
  • Flexible

15
New Model
  • Three possible qualifications
  • Foundation degree
  • Honours Degree
  • Diploma

16
Next Steps
  • Work on Core Competencies
  • Negotiations with potential academic partner
  • Seek Funding
  • BUT FIRST - A MANDATE FROM THE AGM
