Travelling or looking for work beyond your usual area of travel can be a little daunting. However by using our Travel Information Package individuals can learn to navigate their way through maps, timetables and ticketing costs to expand their travel horizons and make them more accessible for employment.
The package is designed to be used as part of a training programme or curriculum. It includes discrete learning modules with questions and answers prepared to Level 1 of the Adult Literacy, Numeracy and ICT Core Curriculum. The package also has an additional section to assist with personal budgeting, so trainers can include them in training materials, if required.
