What is Travel Training?
It is personalised training to teach a person to travel to and from their destination on their own whether it be school, college or work. Being able to access public transport helps people make their own choices about how they live and what they want to achieve. Our travel trainers work at the pace of the individual every day to develop on their skills and confidence.
