Uploaded 22 Jul 2019

We are looking for motivated and reliable support workers to join our new travel training team, working in partnership with Surrey County Council. This role is based out in the community, working with young people with special educational needs and disabilities, helping to support their future independence by teaching them how to travel to school or college independently. This is a fantastically rewarding opportunity for people who like to make a difference to people’s lives. You will need to be a calm and patient communicator who is a confident user of public transport and enjoys meeting people from a range of diverse backgrounds.

Travel trainers work 1 to 1 with young people, at school drop off and pick up times, helping them to learn a range of transferrable skills to support independent travel. You will be given a full training package, so direct experience is not necessary, however you need to have empathy, energy and be willing to undertake an enhanced DBS check. It is highly preferable that candidates are ideally able to drive - or a willingness to learn - and have access to their own vehicle.

The role can be based in a variety of locations across Surrey, including Guildford, Woking, Farnham, Merstham and Weybridge.

A full copy of the job description and person specification for this role can be found via the link on the right hand side of this page.

If you are interested, please submit your CV with a covering letter explaining why you are the ideal candidate for this role by 19th August 2019. Please include which location you are applying for on your covering letter.
