There are many varied volunteering opportunities at Portland College, with many available now


We are very fortunate at Portland College to receive enthusiastic support from many dedicated volunteers.

They provide valuable assistance in the classroom, enhance the lives of our learners during leisure time and serve in our Coffee and Gift Shop which makes a significant financial contribution to our fundraising programme.

Portland College is also keen to engage volunteers with a wide range of skills to help us manage events and fundraising activities. Whether it is project management, managing a team of fundraising volunteers in a locality or helping to publicise events online, Portland College can benefit from your skills.
