Shropshire Council

Post 19 (19 year olds+)

Whilst the council actively encourages young adults to participate in education and training, to progress their pathway to employment and maximise their independence; it is expected that the vast majority of adult learners will make their own travel arrangements and meet the cost of those arrangements.

However, in exceptional circumstances the council may conclude that it is necessary to make arrangements for the provision of transport.

Entitlement will need to be reassessed on an annual basis and necessary evidence must be supplied.

We assess every young person on their individual needs. The obligations that apply to school transport derive from the Education and Inspections Act 2006, (in particular section 508 A-G), and the Department for Education post-16 transport to education and training guidance.
