Description

Service Description

The Tower Hamlets Independent Travel Training (ITT) programme is an innovative project that provides intensive training and support for students in the borough with SEN, to enable them to achieve a higher degree of personal freedom, confidence and independence. The outcome for students undertaking the training is that they will be able to travel to school / college independently by either walking or using public transport.

However, it is accepted that this may not be realistic for some students, in these circumstances realistic goals will be set to ensure that there are positive outcomes and a sense of achievement for all students. ITT welcome referrals from primary schools and secondary schools where a student does not currently use home to school transport but may need Independent Travel Training to enable them to undertake the journey to their new secondary school or college.

Additional Information

Additional Information

Independent Travel Training (ITT) is a very important skill for life. ITT has shown to have positive effects on the lives of the young people trained, as well as those around them.

Successful travel training can enable families to do more things together and provide more time for separate activities. Being able to travel with less support allows young people to do more social and educational activities. this helps them maintain better relationships with their peers. Independent travel skills also help to open up employment opportunities. This all contributes to young people leading a more fulfilled life.
