City-wide independent travel training is provided by our Independent Travel Team.

What is Independent Travel Training?

Independent travel is a crucial life skill that gives people the freedom to fulfil their potential and live a full life.

Independent Travel Training (ITT) provides people with the knowledge and skills they need to travel independently, whilst providing parents and carers with peace of mind that people are travelling safely.

ITT is a free service and is part of the education curriculum. There is a team of experienced Independent Travel Trainers currently working within the community, schools and colleges.
