Learners gain experience of planning the stages of their journeys. They then go out and do their journeys, and then review how they've gone.

The course also explores time and timetables; things to bring to support travel; sources of help on your journeys; and how to keep yourself safe.

The course is accredited at SQA level 2.

"I think it is a good thing to do as a group. We support each other."
