Sports volunteering

We offer opportunities ranging from coaching, officiating and sports development

We offer a number of great volunteering opportunities at the University of Portsmouth to develop your leadership skills through work based learning. Opportunities are there for you from working with our sports clubs to working in schools and the community. We work closely with the University’s Careers and Employability Service, Portsmouth School Sport Partnership and local community partners to offer opportunities ranging from coaching, officiating and sports development, to marketing and academic placements.

Sports clubs

Our 36 sports clubs are organised by students. With a range of committee positions available in each club, the scope for personal development is huge. Many of these roles are voted for by club members, so membership within a club is often advantageous. Roles can include: president, club captain, media secretary, welfare secretary as well as many others. These roles help students develop skills in organising teams, events, and developing their club. The transferable skills gained can help enhance employability for you, and count towards your higher education achievement record
