MiDAS Transformation Update

At the beginning of 2022, CTA began working in partnership with Hampshire County Council (The original developers of MiDAS) and Motability (a national charity with the purpose of enhancing the lives of disabled people with transportation solutions and charitable grant programmes) to transform the MiDAS offering.

We listened to your feedback, and are working to ensure MiDAS offers up-to-date, flexible, responsive, and passenger-focused training, which can be tailored to your work. Our work so far has been focused on transforming the MiDAS Standard Driver Training, working with training design experts to develop the e-learning content to create an improved learning experience. We recently set up an editorial board of MiDAS experts who are reviewing the training for quality and credibility.

Whilst we have achieved a lot, we have much more to do. To that end, to ensure we have all the fundamental mechanisms ready and sufficient time to upskill our DATs across the UK, the launch of MiDAS Minibus Training will be at the beginning of January 2024. We appreciate that this may be later than some of you expected, however, we believe it is critical that we launch the transformed product when we are confident that both the training and its delivery are credible and of high quality.

In the meantime, anyone requiring training should train as normal – all valid certificates will be unaffected by any future changes. If you have any questions, please email training@ctauk.org, and we will happily answer them.
