Travel Training

Travel training helps children and young people gain the skills that help them travel safely and independently.

Many schools and services offer cycle training and pedestrian training as part of their work with groups of children and young people. You can contact your child’s school and the council's road safety team for more information.

Transport for London offers a travel mentoring service for people who need support to develop their confidence in using public transport.

Young people have told us that they want to travel independently. Islington Council are currently developing a local offer of information, support and training through co-production with parents, young people and partners. Over 100 young people had an assessment of their readiness to be travel trained in Autumn 2019. A small pilot of travel training and consultation events in Spring 2020 will inform future plans.
