Travel training with TFL

Mon 23 Jan 2017 9:34am

Just thought I'd share this with you all Smile 

A short story about travel training at our Ambitious College

"We are delighted to be working with TfL to make public transport travelling a reality for learners who may have lacked the confidence to use it in the past. The main benefit to our learners is increased access to their chosen employment and leisure opportunities, as well as the boost in self-esteem and independence that comes with this.

Each week TfL send an empty bus with an autism confident driver to our CONEL campus. Our learners have time to familiarise themselves with the bus at a pace that suits them....."

    step into work with tfl!!

    ---------------

    Steps into Work is designed to give participants with learning disabilities the opportunity to gain practical experience of the workplace whilst learning and developing valuable skills needed for any employment.

    This is a one year programme offering a great opportunity to study for a BTEC Level 1 work skills qualification, including gaining real life work experience in three unpaid placements at Transport for London
