Independent travel training

Travel training courses are aimed at staff, parents and carers who want to learn the skills to support a young person or adult to travel independently.

Whether travelling to access education, employment or leisure, learning to travel independently offers people more freedom and independence. Travel training improves social skills, self-esteem and confidence.

We work in partnership with Enable who provide the travel training courses.   Places are limited and enrolment is necessary.

What to expect on the course

The training course is delivered over three days

  • Day 1: Learning Systematic Instruction values, the travel training process, assessment and planning a route
  • Day 2: Training methods, practical application and evaluation ahead of fading support
  • Day 3: (Follow-Up) You will need to do a presentation about your travel training experience following day two. 

Course dates

Courses are delivered online via Microsoft Teams at 10am to 1pm.  The meeting joining link will be sent by Enable after enrolment.
