SMOOTH Scaling

MTS – SMOOTH Scaling provides the instructor with a comprehensive model for self-evaluation and evaluation of task, to empower the learner to address their own strengths and weaknesses and find solutions for development. Each step of the model is broken down to help your pupils to evaluate and take responsibility, while a case study lays out the effectiveness of the model. Focus questions are provided for each stage and a guidance model is provided to help through lessons, ensuring that your pupil addresses their learning and that their development is SMOOTH!

SEARCH Scaling

MTS – SEARCH Scaling provides the instructor with a framework to help raise self-awareness and EQ (emotional intelligence) in their pupils so that they can narrow the gap between their emotional responses and their rational thought processes. In doing so this model can impact on the key contributory factors in post-test driving. Truly creating ‘safer drivers for life’.

GROW Model

MTS – GROW Model provides a well respected model for goal setting that is proven to motivate the learner to achieve and take responsibility for their learning. It sets out the model in its four stages to enable you to easily work through each phase, effectively helping your pupils to identify realistic goals….the first competence on the SC1 Standards Check marking sheet.

Question Techniques

MTS – Questioning Techniques lays out the questions required to facilitate learning, in their different categories. It spotlights the elusive ‘Coaching Questions’ which enable the learner to effectively explore their thoughts and feelings and address the biggest factors in post-test collisions. This ebook explains which questions should be asked on the move and for what purpose, and relates these to the DVSA’s advice and expectations, and also which questions should be asked at the side of the road. Perhaps most importantly it explains which questions should not be asked at all and debunks the myth that while the wheels are turning the ADI should be regularly asking questions of the learner.
