From as early as 1996, Excel has always been an avid supporter and advocate for independent travel training for some SEN students. We have been offering this service to local authorities since 2000 and have successfully trained scores of young people to take public transport independently.
Whilst we are proud of what the young trainees have achieved, we acknowledge that they worked hard and dared to believe their independence was achievable. Independent travel training is now accepted as one of the approaches towards enabling eligible statemented and disabled young people to access community facilities without the restrictions of pre-booked and specialised transport.
