There have been changes to the funds available to support post 16 transport for new students who have started in September 2016. For most students there will be no transport assistance. There is some support for students who live in low income families, have special education needs or disabilities, are visually impaired and cannot use public transport, or fall into the looked after category. If students are travelling by train a discounted train ticket might be available. Details of what support is available can be found at:
Post 16 students who have already started their courses will continue to receive transport assistance if they are continuing with their course.
Students wishing to make applications are encourage to make these as soon as possible after the 1st of June 2017; applications should be for their first choice for which they have an offer. Use the first link above to find out how to make online or paper application.
