Pertemps Driver Training
‘Pertemps Driver Training is a nationally based driver training, driver behaviour and road risk specialist delivering in excess of 20 thousand courses per annum to commercial companies up and down the UK. With a passion for improving road safety, Pertemps became a partner of ‘The Honest Truth’ in 2013. Pertemps’ role in the partnership has been to promote and develop the message for professional fleet drivers in terms of enhancing safe driver behaviours. Using the Honest Truth concept of animal heads depicting risky behaviours, they adapted the theme to extend across those who drive for work purposes to include day to day issues they may encounter when undertaking work duties.
Additionally, in 2014, Pertemps Driver Training devised a training programme in collaboration with the PFA (Professional Football Association). They developed a bespoke offering for every professional UK Football club. In 2017, the ‘Drive Another Day’ program became part of the curriculum within all Football Academies.
Together, they designed a bespoke classroom workshop which covers all aspects of road safety and driver behaviours. The aim was to ensure the workshop was thought-provoking, interactive and maintained engagement amongst the young players. To enhance the workshop further, they deployed the use of virtual reality technology, giving the course a practical and real world experience that the players may not otherwise have experienced.
This season, the feedback they received from both Players and Managers exceeded expectations and they continue to offer support around this issue in the seasons to come.
A full evaluation of the courses demonstrated that over 97% of those who attended would recommend the course to others!
“I thought that it was well worth doing, it was thought provoking and pitched at the right level. I like the fact that the workshop was varied and a good balance of talk, activity and videos. The presenters engaged the boys – the virtual reality was an ideal way to finish and reiterated all that had been said in the workshop. It was horrific but certainly put the message across. I would recommend this to any other clubs or schools.”- Head of Education”
