Core competencies

Hi well I'm currently going through my pt3 20 hours additional before my test. Does anyone have any good suggestions for remember the core compentencies when fault correcting and fault finding. I keep forgetting to tell them why it's important to say for example check your left mirror on a roundabout. Any ideas?

Re: Core competencies

I just keep forgetting to tell them why they shouldn't do the fault they are making. I thought it's important that you should Go through core compentencies. So spot the fault, tell them what they did. Tell them why they shouldn't and put it right. I just seem to spot the fault and put it right. I just feel like on this pt 3 I'm going to get ripped apart lol. I seem to hear the best way of getting through pt3 is a bombardment of Q&A lol. I find instructional level hard as well. Not trained is easy. Full talk through. But someone who is partly trained I struggle with getting the instructional level right. Any tips on that?  So I suppose there's 2 sort of questions I have there.

Re: Core competencies

If they are struggling to remember part trained revert back to talk through, but get them to talk through with you on a couple of junctions, then try easing back on your instruction whilst they carry on talking themselves through it.
The transition from talk through to independent in a real life situation can generally be slower than a part 3 as normally the examiner will respond quicker to the correct technique then a student would due to the time allowed for the test.

Re: Core competencies

As Evan said dont tell them, ask them why! If they dont know then tell them.
