Principal’s Welcome

Realise the Unimagined You

Principal’s Welcome

Thank you for visiting the Portland College website. I hope you will discover many things of interest here and useful information if you are thinking about studying at Portland, applying for a job with us or supporting our work in other ways.

In these pages you will find out how Portland College can help you to Realise the Unimagined You.

Our superb facilities remove barriers and free you up to concentrate on key goals in your life such as gaining employment, moving towards independent living or progressing to further study. You will have a personalised programme, supported and guided by our friendly expert staff. If you are thinking about becoming a residential student you will discover another dimension to life, a place to try out new activities, form lifelong friendships and have lots of fun.

Whilst we would love to meet you, you don’t necessarily have to come to us. We also work with a range of high quality partners nationally to develop programmes that support disabled people in a variety of settings with employability and vocational skills, and independence training. We also work with a range of Employers to support the development of an inclusive workforce.

Portland College is a very special place and I love working here, but don’t take my word for it, please come and see for yourself.

Thank you so much for taking such great care of our daughter this last year. We were able to relax knowing she was with people who care about her
