Independent Travel Training

Independent Travel Training (ITT) is mobility / independence training for those pupils / students with Special Educational Needs to help them become independent travellers.

It is the process that teaches someone to learn how to travel a specific route on their own and in a safe and responsible way:

  • a unique learning programme specifically designed to individual needs
  • one-to-one flexible bespoke training by a qualified travel trainer
  • support gradually phased out until the individual feels confident and competent enough to do the journey alone

Birmingham City Council is working in partnership with Sandwell Council to offer pupils and young people training to support them to travel independently.
