Turning Interest Into Action
Green Corridor is set up to support young people aged 16-25 who have Special Educational Needs (SEN) and hold an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). We do this, not only through tutoring them through a vocational qualification, but also through emotional & wellbeing, support into employment and our Enrichment Programme.
Here at Green Corridor, we recognise the employment gap for those who have SEN. The proportion of adults with a learning disability in paid employment has decreased over time, from 6.0% in 2014/15 to a low of 4.8% in 2021/22.
We carefully track the destinations of the learners who leave Green Corridor – and we work hard to ensure that they have a positive destination when they leave us. Our leavers in 2022 went on to things that include working in the kitchen of a pub, working on a farm, supported internships with a local hotel group or local authority provided social care. In 2022, 38.9% of our alumni went into supported internships, 16.7% went into employment, 16.7% continued into further study, 16.7%went into an inclusion project, 5.6% into an apprenticeship and 5.6% is unknown.
In academic year 2023-24 we are supporting 50 young people who hold EHCP’s through their Employability and Progression qualifications.
In 2022, we had 45 volunteer with us during the year. This was a great way to build relationships with organisations local to us, raise awareness about Green Corridor and help improve our site for our young people.
