Accessibility and Public Transport Research at UCL

Transport Revealed Using Multimedia for Public Education and Training (TRUMPET)



TRUMPET is an EPSRC Public Awareness of Science award. We are working with schools in Southend to devise suitable methods for encouraging understanding about accessible transport in children with learning difficulties. This project is using relevant outcomes from other projects as the basis for developing materials and approaches for dissemination to a wider group of beneficiaries of the research.

The research team is working with the Department for Education and Employment's Eastern Region Special Education Needs Co-ordination Project (Special Education Needs) on this project. TRUMPET is working closely with the DIMPLE project so that resources are used to best effect.

Working with young people with learning difficulties to help us, we have produced a game called "Going Places!" which serves to pass on our research information in the form of a travel training game.
