Amanda Anderson, Director of Independent Travel
As Director of Independent Travel, Amanda leads the strategic development of our Travel Training programme for young people with Special Educational Needs.
Amanda joined HCT Group in February 2015 and leads the development of our Travel Training programmes across the UK - a service which gives young people with Special Educational Needs the skills and confidence to make the home-to-school journey on public transport.
Amanda joined us from Creative and Cultural Skills, a charity that supports jobs and skills in the creative industries – where she worked for the past nine years. Her most recent role there has been as Operations Director, responsible for managing the delivery of major projects, governance and corporate services.
Prior to Creative and Cultural Skills, Amanda spent two years at the Home Office as a policy advisor on criminal justice reform and two years at Centrepoint – a charity supporting homeless young people, also in a public policy role.
