We are seeking an individual who is passionate about supporting young people to reach their potential.

As a Travel Trainer you will play a vital part in enabling young adults with special educational needs to become independent travellers. Supporting people who come under the NEET criteria (Not in Education, Employment or Training) you will work one to one with individuals helping them increase their confidence and put in support strategies to help them succeed with their goals. You will develop positive working relationships with families to promote the importance of independent travel and how it can benefit young people’s lives.

To be successful in the role you will need to be educated to degree level or be able to demonstrate through experience, the necessary knowledge to carry out the full range of duties. You will already have experience of working with adults, young people or children with special educational needs and be able to demonstrate an understanding of the difficulties parents/carers face when supporting their children to become independent travellers. Above all you must have a flexible approach to working hours, able to travel across the Borough and work from a variety of locations.

In return we offer you the opportunity to work with a friendly and professional team, who share your commitment and passion in making a positive contribution to the lives of individuals with additional needs. And working for Solihull means that we can offer employees a great working environment, together with a range of flexible working options, access to our Employee Assistance Programme (a 24 hour independent, free and confidential advice and support service), attractive staff discounts and a career average pension scheme.
