Support your nervous pupils

As an experienced ADI you already know how to develop the driving abilities of your pupils.  Supporting them to control anxiety and nerves requires a different skill set.  With a Confident Driver membership you will have the knowledge and psychological techniques you need.

Sign students up to your group plan so that they can access the resources and work through them at their own pace at home.  Alternatively by becoming familiar with the techniques yourself you will be well placed to make suggestions to your pupils on areas to focus on. For example, if you notice a pupil has a tendency to be self-critical, you might suggest they look at the self-talk section and together you can agree on some new positive phrasing that you can both use during lessons.
