I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to Ian Sedgwick at Elite Instructor training. Before coming to Ian in 2018 to help me with part 2 and part 3 of the ADI qualification, I had used a larger UK wide training company where I was disappointed with the lack of availability of the trainers and the over-intensity of the training regime.
All this changed when I started being taught by ORDIT qualified Ian. Ian took the time and trouble to assess what I had and hadn’t learnt properly and proceeded to deliver each 2 hour lesson with a tight client-centred focus.
The lessons with Ian included pupil role-plays; watching Ian teaching pupils whilst observing from the back seat; and being observed by Ian whilst teaching live lessons. The lessons also focused clearly on the three main areas of competence i.e. Planning of the lesson, risk management, and teaching and learning strategies; as well as the 17 lower level competencies.
By the time I came to take my part 3, my level of teaching confidence was high and this helped to make the part 3 exam more relaxing and easier to perform well in. I passed. Once again many thanks to Ian and his team for all their help. I would recommend Ian to any one who wants professional help in becoming an ADI.
