The E5 Programme at Portsmouth College is a five strand initiative made of courses that focus on improving your chances of securing jobs, apprenticeships and Higher Education places by taking part in one or more of the following:
ENTERPRISE (in partnership with Unloc)
Explore ideas for creating your own business and get support in making this a reality. Delivered through our partner organisation, Unloc, students will be offered a three stage pathway (Kindling, Spark and Ignite) throughout the year. This phased programme is designed to develop an underpinning knowledge (Kindling), apply the knowledge through college businesses (Spark) and then consolidate the knowledge by setting up a personal enterprise (Ignite). Find out more about Enterprise.
(The P.E.P Talks - Create your PACKAGE, enhance your EMPLOYABILITY, follow your PATHWAYS) Attend a range of talks and support sessions delivered by professionals in topics such as applying for Higher Education, writing a C.V, applying for Apprenticeships, managing your time, getting organised and many more.
