DVSA, The Standards Check and Change
For more information about these changes follow this link.
It is inevitable that change will happen. It is also consistent that government agencies, like the DVSA, do not communicate very well and rarely consult before instigating changes. How we as an industry deal with them is our choice. Learning to deal with change is a mindset that can be developed. If we could accept that changes are inevitable we should ask ourselves: How will they affect me? What can I do to minimise any effect the changes may have? How could these changes help our industry raise standards? So let's answer these questions in turn:
1. How will the changes affect you?
If you feel you will be one of the ADIs who will be targeted, seek help. We have a Facebook group Standards Check Route 51 for ADI & PDI that is designed to help you work towards that 51/51 score.
2. What can I do to minimise any effect the changes may have?
Some of you might want to take a continual professional development course. We have courses for every ability and are happy to discuss your needs, just give our helpdesk a call on 0800 058 8009 and a member of the team will be happy to have a conversation with you.
3. How could these changes help our industry raise standards?
Maybe the changes won’t affect you at all, but I think it is a warning shot across our bows. The DVSA are saying we are responsible for standards and that we want to raise standards. I am sure you would all agree, raising standards is good for all of us. Lifelong learning is something we coach, and we should embrace that motto ourselves by taking responsibility for our own professional development.
If you are interested in discussing any of these issues you are welcome to join The Tri-Coaching Partnership Facebook group.
As a company dedicated to developing ADIs/PDIs we invite you to take the time to peruse our courses and see how we can help your development.

Train the Trainer
read more"Did the Train the Trainer course this month with Graham and I have to say it was brilliant! I did the old style part 3 and was hoping this would clear up question I had about training PDI’s and this course nailed it! The TCIT package itself makes so much sense and I can’t wait to deliver it! Just started on the follow up sessions this week and they are a massive help to really get to grips with everything. All in all, a fantastic course that looses absolutely NOTHING from being delivered via zoom and the help and support that’s offered really is second to none. Thanks to all the team at TCP for all the hard work that clearly goes into all of your courses!"
Standards Check Workshop
"I took part in the standards check/part 3 Zoom workshop. And today, nearly 4 weeks after the course I passed my standards check. Found the course very informative and it definitely helped with my understanding of what to expect on the day. Would highly recommend."

"I've just completed the Coaching Excellence in Business Two Day Presentation Skills Course. A brilliant two days. For anyone interested in developing their business skills and venturing into other areas. We had a lot of fun on this course whilst learning, developing and knocking down barriers. I've learned the importance of the show up and now understand how to overcome feelings that have always inhibited me in the past. Thanks Susan McCormack and Sara Everett-Skinner"
