Independent Travel Training

Independent Travel Training (ITT) is one-to-one training designed to equip young people who are entitled to home to school transport with the confidence and skills required to travel independently, be it on foot, by cycle or public transport.

ITT is facilitated by Independent Travel Trainers who will work closely with school staff, parents, carers and the trainees.

Anyone who is entitled to free home to school transport or Post 16 supported home to school/college transport is able to apply for Independent Travel Training.

With the consent of a legal guardian, one of our trainers will accompany the applicant throughout their whole journey to school or college, empowering them to manage every aspect of their journey independently, for example:

  • Personal Safety
