What is Independent Travel Training ?

Independent Travel Training (ITT) is the delivery of training by staff in schools, colleges, voluntary services and day care services for people who are restricted in their ability to travel unassisted on public transport because of learning or physical disabilities.

Who is Independent Travel Training for?

Independent Travel Training is for people of any age who have learning or physical disabilities, which means they are unable, or are restricted in their ability, to travel unassisted on public transport. The ITT team work with the school, college or provider to deliver the training and can fit this in to the curriculum.

What can Independent Travel Training do for me?

It will help you to feel confident enough to travel independently to local and more widespread landmarks, including school, college, work, work experience and back home.
