The Aspire Federation continues to develop bespoke travel training packages to provide outstanding outcomes for our learners. The ethos of the programme is that learners thrive and become confident, resillient learners who can access opportunities based on personal need and develop their confidence and independence.
The changing nature of the cohort means our programme has evolved to ensure learners are provided with opportunities to follow a personalised programme. We have developed our outstanding practice further to include learners achieving an accredited qualification for their travel training experiences.
