From Green Corridor to Positive Onward Destinations
We run an in-depth and supportive careers programme to ensure our learners are best prepared to progress onto a positive onward destination. We want to ensure that our learners leave with the right skills and values to help prepare them for adulthood, independence and to contribute to their local community.

Our Careers Team 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:
Having friends, relationships and being part of society
Preparing for and finding employment.
Activities such as one to one meetings, careers workshops, attending careers events and also learning about careers within the curriculum help us to prepare our learners for the future.

Parents and Carers
At Green College we recognise the important role parents, guardians and carers play in helping our learner’s transition onwards from College. The need for clear, concise, and impartial information on the choices available has never been so important.

A few stories of our learners who have moved into a positive onward destination
Stuart has been a learner at Green Corridor for just under 2 years now completing his Home Cooking Skills vocational qualification.
Stuart has had the support of his TA, class tutor and job coach who have organised and supporting him in his work placement in a local pub. He is taking orders, using the till, handling money and making the food!
He has now been offered paid part-time employment at the pub after he finishing his education at GC! Until then, he will continue his work-placement on Fridays.
What our parents say
"Time at this parent/carer coffee morning was well spent - a very informative session on the studies and various pathways after leaving Green Corridor."
"Cian feels that the green corridor is a happy place, with staff that work hard to do the best for the learners, he said he has made some great friendships and that he has been able to ask staff for help no matter what. He said his tutors have been brilliant and that all the staff are great. He said he now feels more confident to go to work and hopefully on to have a career working with SEN learners one day"
Jonathan enjoyed his educational experience at Green Corridor and enjoyed being taught by the wonderful staff.

Mandeep was able to support the process of the application through phone calls and online applications with her young person, as well as being supportive of the client needs and circumstances. We managed a successful partnership now he is currently working towards a qualification and to further his work experiences."
