Independent travel training


The deadline for transport applications for September 2022 was 30 April 2022. If you missed the deadline, apply as soon as possible if your child is:
• moving into reception, year 7 or year 12 (even if they are not moving schools)
• changing school (any school year)

Children and young adults with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can get help to travel independently. Training is for children or young adults aged between 10 and 19, who are currently receiving travel assistance from us. Further information about our travel assistance, including examples of successful training, can be found at: 

What can travel training provide?

The trainer will work with the child or young adult and family to agree a programme tailored to their journey from home to school or college. The training will then be provided on a one-to-one basis with most of the trips being made with the trainer. The participant will be given more independence over a number of weeks. The final journeys will be made with the trainer following the participant without any contact unless needed.
