Police looking for driver trainers
2:28pm Tuesday 21st January 2014 in News
Dyfed-Powys Police are looking to create a register of driver trainers and instructors to deliver driver training courses and are looking for interested individuals to come forward and sign up.
Since 1999, the force has been delivering these courses in co-operation with its partners organisations. But now, with plans to extend the range of courses on offer, the force is looking to create its own register.
“These courses are delivered to a national standard under the guidance of the National Driver Offending Retraining Scheme (NDORS) and the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO),” said Jason Rudall who is managing the project. “The courses aim to examine the reasons for driver offending and to outline to drivers the consequences associated with their driving. Coping strategies are then given to help the individual avoid becoming a road casualty statistic.
“The individuals who will be included on the register will work alongside Dyfed-Powys Police staff to deliver these courses on a non-contractual basis. And their experience, skills and knowledge will play a large part in how this is successfully achieved.”
Those who are included on the register will be expected to deliver to a wide audience of varied age, driving experience and background. They will also need to have experience in presenting to diverse groups, to be confident in a training environment and have the ability to manage competing demands.
Dyfed-Powys Police invites expressions of interest from individuals for the delivery of Driver Re-training Courses across Dyfed-Powys.
For further information in respect of the Instructor and/or Trainer specification, training standards, financial and administrative arrangements, please contact jason.rudall@Dyfed-Powys.pnn.police.uk or call on 01267 239101. Any expressions of interest should be submitted by 12th February.
