One of the UK’s leading specialist education providers is expanding into Nottingham this September.
Portland College is offering a fabulous opportunity for learners to develop their employability skills in two wonderful settings. The stunning Wollaton Park programme is perfect for hands-on people who want to work in horticulture, grounds maintenance and trades.
The Antenna programme is aimed at those who want to focus on employability skills such as communication, team working, health and safety and job application processes. Learners will be able to try out different city-based work placements alongside their education programme to help them decide what industry they want to develop a career in.
Both Portland College City Learning programmes are tailored around individual employment outcomes and learners can develop vocational and personal skills and may choose to study a related qualification up to Level 2.
Learners will need to be aged 18-24 and have an Education, Health and Care Plan to apply. Each programme is for three days a week and will usually last between 1 and 2 years.
Mark Dale, Principal and CEO of Portland College commented. “This is an exciting year for our learners. We’ve recently launched our new five-year plan which focuses on extending our provision into the city and other towns so more people can benefit from the Portland experience.
The Portland College City Learning offer means Nottingham based learners can access our high-quality programmes on their doorsteps, reducing the need for travel and improving their independence and employability skills.
We’re proud to offer such a unique programme where learners will gain a host of skills in the fabulous environment of Wollaton Park. For those who want to be more central to the city, the Antenna programme will open up a world of opportunities for learners who are interested in a career in city-based industries such as retail, hospitality and facilities management.
Places will be limited, so don’t miss out, apply today!
