Meet the Ignition!™ Traveller Profile Types

The Ignition! Programme has eight Traveller personality profiles. The Traveller Check-in at the start of the programme will help young people to discover which profile they are best suited to. Once the correct profile has been selected a tailored Ignition! Journey can be designed.
