Frequently Asked Questions

Organisations interested in accessing the Independent Travel Training Programme typically have questions about the programme itself and about the associated Training for Trainers programme. Click on the links below to download MS Word documents that address these frequently asked questions.

The Training for Trainers programme teaches candidates how to use training materials (including workbooks, assessment sheets and multimedia animations) to plan and deliver a training programme at your organisations. Essentially, it focuses on how to extract and use information from an IT resource (multimedia CD-Rom resource) in order to apply it in the classroom.

Please note that the specialised skills that one needs to develop in order to become a trainer or to teach a learning disabled client are beyond the remit of this programme and are not the focus of this course. These skills are a suggested prerequisite to training (as listed in the FAQ).

If there are any questions that we have not answered for you in these documents, please feel free to email Gerry.
