Travel Training careers
Working as an Independent Travel Trainer is a rewarding role supporting young people to learn how to travel independently.
Our Independent Travel Trainers are based in the community, working one-to-one to support young people with special educational needs to travel independently using public transport. Our training helps enhance their independence and ultimately improve their life chances, increasing access to new activities, employment and education.

Travel Trainer's experiences
Michelle was Norfolk’s first Travel Trainer. Her highlight so far was meeting her first young person and seeing his excitement, and she can’t wait to help him realise his potential!
Jaki structures her training with weekly plans for the young person to follow and always ask for their feedback. She says this is the most rewarding job of her career so far!
Hasnain plans the training for the young people he works with, and they progress through it at the individual’s own pace. Hasnain enjoys speaking with the school, local councils and parents too as part of his role.
