Ealing Council is offering a new travel training programme, in partnership with Essex County Council.
Travel Training enables students with SEND to travel safely and independently to their place of learning. Travel Training is a fantastic way to increase confidence and independence and is an important life skill. The training not only allows young people to get to their place of learning independently, but also enhances their social life and ability to access further education and employment as they get older.
On average, the training will take three months, but this might be longer or shorter depending on how long it takes the student and their family to feel confident with independent travel.
