                DCPC and ADR



• Up to a maximum of 21 hours of the initial basic
  course can be approved
• 7 hours of the core module refresher course can be
  approved for periodic training
• The specialist modules will not be accepted for
  Periodic Training
• Training centres and courses will need to be
  approved in line with the DCPC regulations
       Is Funding going to make things easier?



• Funding agency for England is the Learning and
  Skills Council, and for Scotland and Wales it is the
       devolved authorities
• Rulings specifically exclude funding for
  mandatory industry training
• Therefore Periodic Training does not qualify for
  any direct public funding
• Some providers may be delivering Periodic
  Training within a broader NVQ programme
                   Funding?



•   Operators would need to complete this larger
    NVQ programme to access the funding
• Not all programmes leading to NVQs have been
  approved by JAUPT
• Not all drivers will be eligible for funding NVQs
  (for example if they already have one NVQ)
                     Funding?



    Questions to be asked before committing to
                 ‘funded’ options
• What is being funded? Is it completion of an NVQ?
• What part of the training programme has been
  approved by JAUPT?
• How many hours of Approved training will the
  course deliver?
• Will all of my drivers attract public funding?
• What about future years? (An NVQ can only be
  funded once).

      An Old Management Adage

                 can’t be improved.
Decide what you want from the DCPC
     and apply SMART targets
S = Specific
M = Measurable
A = Achievable
R = Relevant             Then measure
                          the results.
