Work Experience

Work Experience

Learners undertaking vocational courses at Portland College benefit greatly from undertaking practical Work Experience placements.

It can be difficult to get a break into the working world and this can be even harder for our students that may have retrained, and have little experience in the field they wish to move into.

In order to give our learners the best possible chance of moving in to work, Portland College has already established links with a number of local, national and international companies with bases in the Midlands who provide superb workplace opportunities for learners accessing vocational programmes at Portland College. These placements range from a few hours a week, to a full time six-week placement.

If you think your business may be able to offer Work Experience placements, or you would like to find out more please contact 01623 499111 or email us .

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
