At Opportunities Doncaster, we specialise in bringing Business and Education together, and we are supporting schools to provide students with interactive, inspiring and informative careers experiences. We’re passionate in what we do and we want to ensure that what we do is done by Doncaster, for Doncaster. All of our activities are supported by local businesses that have a vested interest in your learners, their future workforce, and helping us make them aware of the fantastic career opportunities in the borough.
It is important to us that our careers activities are high quality and meaningful to students, and with this in mind we have purposefully designed the content of our programmes to follow the 4 steps set out in the Careers and Enterprise Company’s ‘Making it Meaningful’ framework.
