About Us

A college of excellence

About Us

Portland College is a vibrant national college for people with a wide range of disabilities. The Portland College offer includes Further Education, as well as Employment Support and Personal Care.

We strive to develop every learner’s unimagined potential with a personalised programme. For those learners attending the Portland College campus in Sherwood Forest, such a programme can include work experience and volunteering. The personal curriculum is underpinned by a broad range of accredited qualifications in independence, literacy, numeracy, sport, arts, business studies, computing, small animal care and horticulture.

We deliver a specialised sensory curriculum for learners with more complex needs.

Portland College is also dedicated to working with Employers to help them develop a more inclusive approach to recruitment and workforce development. For those individuals we support in their workplace or elsewhere, they can be assured of the same high standards of support and personalisation of their programme.

An increasing number of students attend internal and external work placements learning to cope in different settings
