When learners graduate from The Ridge Employability College it means it’s a time for moving on. Their destinations can be varied and include voluntary/paid employment, access to further education, supported internships and social destinations.

Graduation from the Ridge is fully supported by the EHCP process.

The college is still around to provide information and guidance to support the transition and works with, where appropriate external practitioners.

Any of our graduates are welcomed back through our social evenings and events that are offered through our after college club (ACC). Information is available by contacting the office on 01302 897445.
