Report

The course was designed to be delivered continuously with an opportunity for additional home study.

I attended for one day at premises hired for the purpose. There were excellent facilities and good access to a wide range of road and traffic conditions.

The course was being delivered to two delegates by two trainers. The first session involved an interactive discussion surrounding the practicalities of a visit to an organisation to deliver fleet driver training. Subjects covered included the law, health and safety and work related road safety. The responsibilities of the trainer and the training organisation were also covered.

An outline of the requirements for the occupational road risk presentation, vehicle checks, assessment drive, feedback and coaching session were also discussed in detail.

The second session was a practical in-car session with a demonstration by the two trainers on delivering the occupational road risk presentation in a conversational fashion, vehicle safety checks and driving assessment. This was followed by demonstration on delivering feedback and coaching in a very relaxed developmental way. Both trainees were given an opportunity to get involved, give opinions and ask questions.

The demonstration was of a high calibre and delivered in a realistic manner which allowed the trainees to observe and interact in an environment that encouraged learning. The role play and fault simulation was of a good level that matched the scenario outlined at the start of the session.

Feedback was given to both trainers at the end of these sessions.

On the third session I accompanied Steve delivering a training session on coaching techniques. The trainee was experienced and had previously carried out some fleet work. Steve pitched the training at a pace to suit this and used good coaching techniques to bring out the best of the trainee. This was a very successful session with a lot of good work achieved.

I accompanied Roger on the fourth session. He worked extremely hard to match the needs of his trainee who was struggling to understand the requirements of a fleet trainer. The weaknesses in the trainees skills and knowledge were identified early on and the training adapted to match this. There was evidence of very good coaching skills and the session was fully interactive with some signs of trainee improvement as the session continued.

Full feedback was given to both trainers at the conclusion of the visit with strengths and weaknesses re-capped or highlighted; they were both very receptive to this. Overall this was a highly satisfactory visit and I have no hesitation in recommending the organisation for re-accreditation.
