Teaching Skills Development For ADIs
Were you taught well enough during your Part 3 training?
Or were you only taught how to pass the exam?
Has your tuition stagnated rather than progressed?
Have you allowed your tuition standards to slip backwards?
Did you pass part 3 a long time ago and you fear your tuition is not up to date?
Do you lack confidence in your teaching?
Are you worried about, or have you failed a check test?
Is your pass rate low?
Is your teaching good, but you want it to be better?
A lot of Part 3 training courses are geared to passing the test, with very little, if any guidance about teaching real students.
As a consequence of this many ADIs pass the Part 3, and then have to work out how to deal with all the problems of teaching real people for themselves.
Some of the methods they develop may be good, but others may be not so good.
Is the best way for an ADI to develop, to rely on trial and error?
An ADIs job is teaching
Teachers in other fields receive ongoing training and development
Surely ADIs should look at ways of keeping their teaching abilities up to date, progressing them further, and perhaps gaining other teaching qualifications.
