Independent travel training

Introduction

On this page you will find out about Derby's Independent Travel Training scheme.

Travel training offers young people with Special Educational Needs a set of essential skills to enable them to travel independently.

Travel Trainers work on a one-to-one basis with a learner to gain independence on a specific route to and from school or college. They usually work with a learner for about 10 return sessions, gradually developing their independence through accompanied, close and distance shadowed journeys.

The scheme promotes independence, increases confidence, improves social skills and opens up routes to further education, employment and leisure.
