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.

Please read through the Volunteering Vacancies below; if there is a position that you think matches your skills and availability, please complete and send us the downloadable application form and our Volunteer Co-ordinator will be in contact.

We observed there was a relaxed, calm and happy atmosphere at the service with lots of smiles, good humour, fun and gestures of affection.
