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. According to Andrew Powell from the House of Commons Library, in July - September 2019, the unemployment rate for people with a disability was 6.7% compared with a significant difference to 3.7% of which are unemployed people who do not have a disability.
80% of our Alumni have gone into sustainable employment, 10% went into further education and 10% went into volunteering placements.
In 2019, we supported 25 young people who hold EHCP's through their Horticulture qualifications, 5 young people who hold EHCP's and 4 who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) through our Home Cooking course.
In 2019, we ran 12 Community Groups within Hillingdon, Ealing and Hounslow and hosted 20 Corporate Volunteering Days at our Learning and Development Centre.
Careers, Information, Advice & Guidance
"As the career’s adviser for Green Corridor, I ensure that all of our learners have access to information, advice and guidance around their career choices and future goals.
These goals are not just centred on securing employment, but also focus on the learners to explore;
Having friends, relationships and being part of society
Preparing for and finding employment.
Learners are offered a range of activities around careers information, advice and guidance and sessions are tailored to meet the individual needs and we at Green Corridor recognise this so that our learners can maximise on their potential.
Activities include; 1-1 meetings, careers workshops, attending careers events and also learning about careers within the curriculum."
