Ealing junior travel ambassador (JTA) annual programme
What are JTAs?
JTAs are a pupil council that specialise in promoting active and sustainable travel as well as road safety. They are usually comprised of year 5 and 6 pupils but can be other year groups. Pupils get together on a regular basis with a staff lead to discuss ways they can promote and encourage active and sustainable travel and plan and deliver activities they can run themselves.
JTA programme 2021/22
We have a programme of activities to support JTAs in schools: Junior travel ambassador (JTA) programme 2021/22 (pdf)
This includes ideas for events, competitions, bulletins to read in assemblies, awards and other free resources.
