My travel training journey

All aboard

Hi, my name is Rosann, I am going to tell you about my travel training journey.

I want to be more independent by going to different places by myself, I asked my enabling team to help me find a course that would benefit me in getting my independence and being confident when travelling on my own.

My enabling team and I found a course through People in Action it was a 12-week course, called Independence Lives. I contacted the course leader with my support I introduced myself and asked what we would be doing in those 12 weeks.

On my first day, I went with my enabler, I was nervous and shy as it was my first time, but I had reassurance from my support and once we got started, I loved it! We went through what a safe place is such as a police station, hospital, and doctors.

Throughout the course we then learned how to plan long journeys on the bus or train such as what time the bus/train is, tell someone where you are going and what time you will be back, carry your phone with you, and have your bus/train passes, taking medication with you.

During the course we planned journeys to Headingly, Harrogate, and York and then had to put it into practice, I was nervous at the start buy but my confidence has grown, I have gained new skills and also made new friends.

I had to complete course work throughout and I have completed the 12 weeks and have only gone and passed my course and got a certificate, I am over the moon. I am now planning to go to Scarborough and will use all that I have learned whilst doing this course and I am very excited.

Rosann is standing proud with her certificate.

Safe travels and we can't wait to see all the places you visit.



Why not, sit back and read more about some of our great successes.
