Six 4 Sixty #2

We're back with the second edition of Six 4 Sixty as I'm joined by my regular team of ADI Avengers: Phil Cowley, Neil Wightman, Lee Spary, Emma Cottington, Chris Bensted, and Bob Morton.

They tackle six questions submitted by members of The Instructor Podcast Facebook group.

Here are the questions and their approximate time stamp:

  • Should ADIs be more involved teaching the theory? (2.50)
  • Should CPD be made compulsory and what CPD should ADIS be doing? (9.10)
  • If an ADI has a good pass rate and never gets any complaints, but fails a SC, what does that say about the ADI and the system? (16.05)
  • What would you say to ADIS/PDIs about the ‘lesson theme’ section on the ADI1 marking sheet? (23.18)
  • What are your thoughts on graduated licences? (29.05)
  • How can instructors go beyond teaching for a test? (36.09)
