The right next step
Our programme gives young people with Special Educational Needs the skills and confidence to make the home-to-school journey on public transport. How do we ensure that the programme is the right next step for the young person?
We engage each young person and their parents / carers in deciding whether the Independent Travel Training Programme is right for them. In this initial stage, there is:
- A discussion between the young person and the coordinator and a short journey on public transport
- A discussion with the parents / carers and the school
- A home-to-school route planned and risk assessment completed
Only if these stages are successful will the young person move on to training.
