Opportunities Doncaster LIVE is an annual flagship event that enables over 100 employers and education providers to interact with over 3,000 young people and inspire them about the wide variety of career pathways available to them across the borough.


This day-long event offers a friendly interactive environment for exhibitors to engage with young people, offer careers guidance, answer questions, provide have-a-go activities and inspire their future workforce.


Part of the day will include ‘Ask the employer’ panel discussions and ‘Get Involved’ workshops, both designed to bring business, education and young people together, raise aspirations and inspire.


The day will culminate with judging and awarding the winning team of the business/curriculum based project that young people will have worked on leading up to the event that will give them an insight into the type of skills they will need to be work-ready.

Over 100 business and education providers will exhibit the learning and career opportunities they offer to over 3,000 young people from all Doncaster secondary schools and other primary schools and colleges.

There will be a friendly interactive environment for employers and higher education providers to positively engage with young people and showcase their hidden careers, learner pathways, apprenticeships, successful case studies, and offer ‘have a go’ activities to give an insight into the type of work they might be doing.

Inspiring business people from different sectors will also participate in “Ask the employer" panel discussions to share and answer questions regarding careers and opportunities across the borough and how young people can continue to learn and prepare to be work ready.

These will be complemented by Get Involved Workshops for all attendees to find out more about what’s planned to support business, education and young people in their careers and learning.

The day will also include an awards presentation for schools to bring their completed curriculum projects (set by Opportunities Doncaster in relation to a real-business project) to be judged at the show.
