Welcome to Portsmouth College Adult and Continuing Education

We are delighted that you are considering taking up one of our Adult and Continuing Education courses. For more information on a course, and the opportunity to enrol online, please choose from one of the above subject areas.

Futures Courses

These lead to a formally recognised qualification (e.g. GCSE English) through one of our online, frequent, block or blended delivery methodologies. Online application for futures courses starting in January closes on 3rd Jan 2021.

For all of these courses, you will need to have an interview before we can confirm your place. The purpose of the interview is two-fold:

  1. For you to complete an initial skills assessment, which will enable us to provide you with the most appropriate guidance and ensure you enrol on the correct course;
  2. To assess the level of fees that you may need to pay. The Government provides Portsmouth College with funding to support our courses, however in many cases you will also need to make a contribution. Fees due will depend on any existing qualifications that you hold, your age and your employment status.

You will have the opportunity to select a convenient date/time for your interview once you have applied to join one of these courses.

Fun Courses

These are generally short courses and start at the beginning of each term (September, January and April), covering areas such as Languages, Music, Art, Fitness and Cookery. For all of these courses, you will need to pay a fee when you enrol on the course. Online enrolment for these courses closes 1 week before the course starts.
