Guidelines for learning providers on travelling to learning for adults with disabilities or learning difficulties.
For many learners with learning difficulties or disabilities transport is a key factor in whether they are able to participate and succeed in learning. Transport issues are not all directly related to financial constraints: there are challenges around transport arrangements, transport routes, availability and reliability of both public and contracted transport, physical access, attitudes of transport staff and of course transport funding.
Getting there and back again is aimed at further education providers but has relevance to others working with adult learners. It offers advice and opportunities to think about assessment, working with other organisations, travel training, concessionary and subsidised schemes and funding for adults with learning difficulties and or disabilities.
