Portland College Moving On Event 2019

IAGT’s recent Moving On event was a resounding success, a fantastic 83 learners attended the main showcase event in the afternoon, and a large number of parents and carers accompanied to find out about what could be next for learners when they leave Portland.

There were 24 external providers who had stalls displaying what they could offer our leavers, which is the busiest Moving On event since it’s conception 3 years ago. Learners interacted well with all of the stands, taking information and asking questions. From their evaluation forms, many learners stated that Mencap, in particular, were very helpful.

Prior to the main event in the Newstart Hall, there were several talks and workshops for learners, including one led by current learners Amy and Josh who are currently undertaking Supported Internships with external companies. They talked to their peers about how beneficial it has been building their work related skills along with their confidence.

IAGT will use learners’ feedback forms to follow up with potential transition plans and external providers within their one to one sessions from now onwards.

Thanks go to all who supported the event, including the Hospitality & Catering learner group who provided refreshments to all of the stall holders.
