Travel

Travel skills are vital for students wanting to live an independent adult life, and although some of our students will be supported on travel even into adulthood the awareness of danger on the roads, and being exposed to hazardous situations is essential to keeping students safe in the community. Informal and semiformal students will be exposed to setup/simulated dangers in school, so they can learn how to manage and deal with dangers in a controlled environment. When they are ready, the students are highly supervised to practice these skills in the community.

Formal pathway students have a more varied exposure to travel on foot, on public transport; buses and trains, and on the mini bus. They will visit different places each week and become more independent in their ability to safely get from A to B in preparation for their next steps in life.
