Independent travel training

Independent travel training can teach you to build your confidence in learning how to travel independently; whether that is on foot, by bike or using public transport.

The service is available to:

  • You will be attending school or college full-time with an EHCP (540 guided learning hours)
  • You will be aged between 16-19 years old
  • You will be attending the nearest school or college that can meet your educational needs
  • You will live over 3 miles away from your nearest school or college

Travelling independently is important if you want to be able to live independently and take part in social activities in the community. It can also give you more choice; for example when looking at job opportunities and going out to meet friends.

We are working closely with schools to help them embed travel training into their curriculum. In this way, we hope to encourage far more students to access independent travel training.
