Here's a hint of what to expect when you take driving lessons with Compass...
RECAP PREVIOUS LESSON
On every lesson we will always recap what you had worked on during your previous lesson to allow you to reflect upon what you learned and to bring some continuity to your lessons. We will look at any areas that have to be reviewed from your previous lesson and go over what you could have done better and what positives you should keep up and take forward.
We actively encourage you to have a look at your own previous performances during lessons. From there we will look at where you would like to take your progression with consultation from your instructor. By having you step back and look at your learning, not just the previous week but overall, it allows you to take ownership of your development.
INSTRUCTORS LESSON AIMS
At the start of each lesson we will set out aims and objectives for specific teaching areas we would like to focus on, setting out what we will like to have achieved by the end of the lesson. We will also be looking at areas you would like to develop or feel you need more confidence in.
This is where we get out on the open road and put into practice the skills we have to execute in order to achieve the lesson objectives we have already discussed. We like to spend as much time as possible during lessons doing what we are meant to be here to learn... driving.
At the end of each lesson we look at the lesson as a whole and have a brief discussion on what we have done, what we have achieved and what we need to improve upon to progress further. We will also review where you are within the scope of the course in its entirety, how far you have come and what needs to be developed to get you test-ready.
Towards the end of the evaluation we will set the tone and objectives for the next booked lesson so you can mentally prepare and get in the car again knowing exactly what to expect.
PUPIL DEVELOPMENT RECORD SENT
Every pupil receives an electronic pupil record that is sent after each lesson to allow transparency between pupil and instructor to chart your journey throughout the course of lessons and demonstrate your progress with detailed notes for review.
