The National Associations Strategic Partnership, composed of DIA, ADINJC and MSA, has released a statement today detailing the continuing frustration and concern regarding changes to how Standards Checks and Part 3 assessments are prioritised.
Read the full statement below.
DIA Chief Executive Carly Brookfield commented “We have continued to meet with DVSA regularly on this issue but remain frustrated that the many concerns and questions the industry has expressed about these changes have still not been satisfactorily addressed.
As a result of our latest discussion with the agency on Monday we prepared a statement which summarises our current position. It is important DVSA really listens to the industry on this issue and does not just plough on regardless thinking these changes are a medicine trainers just need to swallow for the greater good.
We broadly support the use of a wider set of performance measures (rather than just purely a Standards Check alone) to build a better picture of trainer competence, but how this is all built and delivered needs to be done with better consultation and communication than what we’ve experienced to date.”
