SEND Transport Manager, Oldham Council
"I have developed a great professional partnership with Spectrum Courses. Their dedication to driving through improvements for home to school transport services, via their training courses, is clearly evident with the support provided, and their attention to detail with course content. I appreciated Spectrum's creative approach to bringing a modernised training on line, and offering a flexible programme towards learning."
"Thank you Spectrum!"

"Previously I had to deal with complaints surrounding our Passenger Assistant training in terms of quality, consistency of information, late certificates, overcharging etc. These have disappeared from my inbox, so thank you for this."

We have been very impressed with Spectrum Courses, which use a modern online platform which allows people to take the course in bitesize chunks in their own time to fit around their own work schedules.

“…invaluable courses, I can’t fault them.”
Paul Miller Enterprises, Carlisle
Spectrum are invaluable courses, I can’t fault them. My staff can sit in the comfort of their own homes at a time that is convenient to take them. If they have needed help, customer service from Spectrum has been exemplary.
“enabling us to raise the standard for all involved…..”
Jennie Lucas, Home to School Transport Consultant
From the moment I saw the courses I knew from my 10 years working in the field of Home to School especially Special Educational Needs transport that they filled a huge gap in knowledge and good practice for all involved.
This was exactly what was needed in terms of Safeguarding awareness and an understanding of the important role that those doing this work need to have.
Thousands of journeys each year are disrupted and cancelled due to breakdown in understanding of needs of the children and young people in the vehicles, this has a massive impact on their education as it’s not just ‘another journey’ but a critical service to help support these vulnerable people.
What Spectrum courses has achieved within the transport sector and by lobbying and raising awareness with government is enabling us to raise the standard for all involved and through these accredited courses help the drivers and pupil escorts have real pride in the vital work they do.
