Here at The Green Corridor, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change and create opportunities for those who have Special Educational Needs (SEN).
What We Offer
We believe that being outside, doing some gardening and Horticulture work is good for your mental wellbeing. Even something as simple as having a plant on your shelf can reduce stress and make you feel more energised and able to think more clearly, and many that suffer from anxiety have found gardening and caring for plants to be incredibly beneficial.
Cooking at home, or other places are good for your mental health because it is an act of patience, mindfulness, an outlet for creative expression, a means of communication, and helps to raise one's self esteem as the cook can feel good about doing something positive for their family, themselves or loved ones.
Functional Skills helps our young people relate their work to real world problems, giving them the skills to use when they move on into employment.
Our dedicated on site Functional Skills tutors work with the learners in small groups to ensure we are providing as much support as we can.
Welcome to Green Corridor.
Learners, Parents and Staff tell us that Green Corridor is a special place. It is a provision where learners aged 16-25 with Special Educational Needs and an Education Health and Care Plan come to learn and be prepared for the next stage of life, be that employment, a supported internship or social care. Feedback from Learners and Parents reminds us of the life changing impact of their time here.
Green Corridor is a registered charity and approved Section 41 Post-16 Specialist Education Provider. Our study programmes are individualised to the needs of each learner to prepare them for education at the next level or for employment, centred around either catering or horticulture alongside a functional skills programme. All learners have access to regular one-to-ones for emotional and wellbeing support, alongside our Enrichment Programme and Careers Support.
Based at our unique Learning and Development Centre adjacent to Terminal 5 at Heathrow, we offer Horticulture and Catering facilities that help young people with special educational needs and learning disabilities achieve qualifications, independence, and confidence.
Here at Green Corridor, we are proud of all our young people and the expertise of our amazing staff who use their unique blend of skills, knowledge and experience to provide tailored learning pathways for each young person. This enables our learners to gain qualifications, confidence, life skills and independence to help them secure sustainable job outcomes.
All who visit us are bowled over by our safe and welcoming environment, sense of purpose and our determination to go that extra mile for each and every young person in our care, so please do come and visit us and talk to our staff to discover if our provision is right for you.
