Guest blogger from Falkland House School – how learning independent travel skills is helping me get ready to leave school

This week on the Enquire blog, we are delighted to welcome Jonathan, a pupil at Falkland House School, to have his say. Falkland House is a residential school in Fife for boys with support needs. In his blog, Jonathan has decided to write about the support he’s been getting to learn independent travel skills so that he’s ready for life after he leaves school. Over to you Jonathan…..

“Before I learned Independent Travelling I never really went on Public Transport on my own. At school with staff assistance I first learned to travel locally to college and then expanded to travelling home and also returning to school. By being able to do this I succeeded in attending Work Experience at Dunnes Store (Retail Outlet), G-Force (Gaming Store) and working with animals at Knowetop Farm. I travelled independently to all of my placements.

I feel these experiences have given me more confidence and increased my prospects of being successful in the future.”

I love this picture of Falkland House School above, it looks like the sort of place they could film a Harry Potter movie! You can get more info about Falkland House School on their website.
