In order to help students develop their independence we work closely with the South Gloucestershire Transitions Team and their Travel Training service.
Travel Training isn't just about using public transport. It is also about students being safe and confident in their local community.
This will start with walks, focusing on road safety, stranger danger and route planning.
Students will continue this development with support, using timetables, planning more complicated routes and using public transport.
As well as a practical life skill we also have scope to work with students to learn routes that are important to them for example the bus route from home or the bus route to college.
