Our Horticulture courses are for young people aged 16 - 25 who have an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) or those who are in the process of getting one. This means your course can be funded by your local borough within London and surrounding areas.
The courses are designed for young people who have struggled within mainstream education, but who want to achieve and get into the world of work.
All groups are kept small with 7 young people to 1 tutor, this allows for a higher level of support, as standard, so that young people can have their voice heard and have the attention and support needed. The lessons are individualised for each learner based on the young person's needs. We run 4 days a week from Monday to Thursday, those who are independent travellers will get picked up and dropped off at Heathrow T5 bus stop every morning and afternoon in our minibus, and learners can also be dropped off straight to site by their parents or carers.
We offer BTEC's in Practical Horticulture Skills from Pre-Entry to Level 2. All courses are taught by our highly qualified and experienced tutors who teach in group sizes of 6 learners to one tutor. This means our young people to get maximum amount of support and attention whilst allowing learners to thrive and continue to positively impact their personal and social development.
Current Learner Stories
Ryan started green corridor and had some very challenging behaviours, but it didn’t take long for him to realise that we were truly here to help our learners. This became apparent when he sent a text to a member of staff and said, “Wow, Green Corridor does actually want to help people.” Ryan progressed quickly and although he had a couple of difficult moments, he managed to gain Level 1 Maths and a Level 1 Horticulture qualification.
Ryan has made massive improvements in both his maths and English and he now has tools that will help him as moves on and into the world of work.
