Travel Training

Travel training is designed to help people get more from life by giving them the confidence to travel independently. Being able to access public transport helps people to make their own choices about how they live and what they want to achieve. Pupils in Year 11 are encouraged to travel independently, using a bus pass.


Travel training can help overcome barriers to:

  • Employment

  • Social inclusion

  • Independent journeys to School/College
