'Tri-Coaching Standards Check Training Day.
Having booked on the above course I wasn't sure what to expect and was, I'll be honest a little sceptical, nervous and thinking to myself what could I take from the day.
The day was amazing, mind blowing and fun thanks to Terry Lefteri . I'm going to book the aCCeLerate two day course soon. I can't wait to understand more about Client Centred Learning. Thanks Terry and see you soon'
Gary Palmer - ADI
'Thought provoking, informative day. Allayed any myths about coaching and affirmed the value of my experience but equally highlighted what I can improve'
'Have just had my standards check and passed with flying colours. Thank you Terry Lefteri. Xxx'
'Enjoyed a very informative training day, which will improve my skills as a driving instructor and understand the Standards Check'
'An interesting and informative day. Most enjoyable'
'Hi Terry you remember me Lawrence Sevume I can tell you that today with your help on your ccl coaching day I have passed my check test. Thank you so much. Any ADI who think that you don't have to change the way we used to teach or thinks it's ok to just do what you normally do is living in the past'
I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I enjoyed the accelerate course run by Terry. He made the course with his wit and personality. Terry has a way of getting the very best out of you. To say that Terry made the course what it was is a massive understatement. You will love his role play....let's just say he really makes you think!! Having undertaken this course with Terry's help and guidance I now have a much greater understanding of coaching and in particular the ways that I can start to implement the methods and structure in preparation for the new standards check. If you are considering this course and have been having any doubts then all I can say is you really will learn a lot from Terry and I would strongly urge you to book your place. Many thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable couple of days.
'I have really enjoyed the course and after feeling a very confused on the 1st day it all clicked into place on the 2nd day. I have started using the techniques in my lessons and it is benefitting my students and me massively. Terry is a great trainer and made it fun and kept me interested. I recommend this course highly, it was a great 2 days. Booking the course was really easy and I'm kept up to date with emails'

'I found the course very enjoyable and informative. Terry is a great trainer and made me feel very relaxed. This course is definitely going to help me improve as an instructor and help my pupils enjoy their lessons even more.'
Andrew Giles - ADI St Albans
I really enjoyed the course, lots to think about. I started to use coaching techniques after Day 1 and enjoyed how my pupils responded. Looking forward to using coaching to more of a degree now I've done day 2. The course was delivered in a constructive and fun manner, in a very comfortable atmosphere. Terry was very approachable and supportive and made it very clear his support was ongoing. Thank you!
I have found that after doing the course I have learnt about how I behave and how it will help my students become safer. I think the course was amazing and Terry was very approachable and friendly and I felt that I could ask him anything without being made to feel silly. I would highly recommend Terry and the course, because after 23 years of teaching learners I thought I knew everything there was to know, but this course has opened my eyes and shown me there are other methods that will help me become a better instructor. So a big thank you to Terry.
I'd like to thank you for guidance you provided during my accelerate course I attended. I have recently had my Standards Check and was graded an 'A' with a score of 48 out of a possible 51. I was obviously over the moon with this result. The examiner remarked on how well I executed the coachin...g session and said that I must have been on a course(when I mentioned your name and Tri-Coaching he knew who you were so the word must be spreading) Also I was surprised at how less nervous and more prepared I felt than on my previous Check Tests. Thanks for everything Terry. Please also pass on my thanks to all at Tri-Coaching Partnership' Robin
Robin Farmer - ADI St Albans
I've just taken my Standards Check and acheived an 'A'. Just wanted to say thank you very much for the excellent 2 day aCCeLerate course I did with you. Learning about coaching techniques and getting my students to take responsibility helped me a lot. I am enjoying putting into practice what I've learned so far and looking forward to developing more.Once again, thank you very much indeed.
Andrew Giles - ADI St Albans
'The accelerate course was very useful with plenty of in-car opportunities - much better than sitting in a classroom. It has given me more confidence in my own abilities. Terry was very supportive, very knowledgeable, and made the days progress with laughter and positivity.'
Paula Carter - ADI Cambridge
'Thank you Terry for the wonderful day I had with you. I can't tell you how less tired I am today because I have been a salesman for a long time, trying to sell my lessons to my pupils, I talk talk none stop. But today my pupils did the talking I was just helping them here and there. One girl who always responds with a 'yes' or 'hmm' to my questions today exploded with responses and I was left speechless. I can't wait for tomorrow lessons.'
'Thanks for a great day yesterday Terry. Informal and relaxed yet very informative. Loved the opportunity to interact with not just yourself but the rest of the group. Time and money well spent and hoping to take the next step (BTEC) at my earliest opportunity!'
'Hi Terry, I passed my Standards Check today with a Grade A. I wanted to say thanks for all your invaluable help. I use coaching every day and it is more natural now. I honestly do not think I would have got a grade A without your help. I have recommended you to other ADI's. Thanks again, Matt'
Matt Miller ADI
'Hi Terry many thanks for a great day of training. I learnt lots and I've already started putting it into practice.'
'Excellent 2 days. Great insight into modern training, really helped my outlook on bringing the best out of my pupils. Thanks Terry'
'Really enjoyed the course, a great eye opener. Terry was a really great coach and an all round nice bloke. Would highly recommend this course to anyone'
'I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Terry for giving such a great course on coaching for his BTEC Level 3 Course I attended recently. Little did I know that a few days before the course started that I would receive my Standards Check invitation. We had the last day of the course the day before my SC. The result of which I got an "A" grade. Thank you Terry'
Louise Watson ADI - St Albans
'The course was very informative and enjoyable. having not used coaching before I didn't know what to expect. I will now use coaching as a way forward with my lessons. Terry was very friendly and helpful, it felt as if I had known him a long time.'
Gail Owen ADI - Stevenage
Had an amazing time and learnt so many fresh ideas to implement.
Terry made the course and its content fun and engaging....... feeling inspired.
Thank you Terry
I have just returned from completing the Accelerate course with Terry. I found the course really helped me to understand what is required and what is meant by the term "client centred" . I learnt different techniques in coaching and I have already tried some out by practicing on some of my learners, with really amazing results. The course has also helped me to reflect and perhaps re evaluate the way I do some things. Terry explained things in a way which I could understand and clarified things when I didn't. Because Terry is such a nice guy it made you feel at ease with your learning. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in expanding their skills. Thank you Terry
Hi, just wanted to thank you for, a very structured, informative 2 days, thoroughly enjoyed the course and the company. I now understand why coaching is a very necessary and useful skill to have in our profession. Although I have a lot to build on from what I took from the course, my goal is to improve each day, small bits at a time!
Thank you for delivering the course in a structured but relaxing way, which made me feel at ease and I look forward to doing more training in this area
First off I would say that I was sceptical of client centred learning and not sure if it would make any difference to client learning. After starting to teach driver training 37 years ago old habits die hard.
At the start of the training it was hard to get my head round the concepts and to work out the right type of Q & A to use. But with your guidance the theory started to make sense to a small degree although I was not still sold on this method.
As day 2 progressed I started to get my head round what you were saying and how a client centred approach could be of benefit to driver training and not just the client but you the instructor. Your training methods were easy to follow and you delivered them in a friendly manor.
Since the training has finished I have started to introduce a client centred approach into my training methods. I am finding that pupils seem to learn quicker and are taking responsibility for their training and I have seen a marked change in their attitude to driving. I am also now more reflective of how my training has been delivered to my clientèle and actively look for ways to improve what I deliver.
I would like to thank you Terry and the Tri-Coaching Partnership for giving me a new outlook on driver training and giving me renewed vigour to deliver it in a more enjoyable way. I am now a convert to client centred training as it has made my working life more enjoyable and gives my students a better method of learning to make them safer drivers once they have passed.
Thanks Terry for providing us with an excellent BTEC 3 course. I found it very enjoyable and thought provoking. It was a bit of a culture shock to me and I can see I have a lot of work to do. You did a great job in showing us where we need to get to. I was quite exhausted afterwards though. My little grey cells aren’t what they used to be.
Terry really well presented BTEC course. Loads of brilliant information to improve my coaching and move forward to being a great coach.
Thank you Terry for a really enjoyable and informative course. Can't wait to practise what I have learnt, Thanks for your patience as I know I am not the quickest learner but I got it and had a great time on the course.
Terry is a great guy-learned loads- very relaxed approach to helping us learn. Certainly coaching is the way to go. I now need to go and practise all the great advise.
