The Doncaster Skills Academy is a bespoke package of support available to Doncaster schools via the Chamber and their partners, which aims to complement their existing provision, to further enhance the future work prospects of local students.
The Skills Academy consists of a variety of modules covering three key areas of activity - Aspirations and Awareness, Employability and Work Readiness and Enterprise and Commerciality.
The creation of the Skills Academy stems from the passion of local business people and their desire to ensure that Doncaster’s students are supported in developing the right skills and competences needed for their future careers.
The Skills Academy offers a variety of interventions such as giving students real life work experiences and support from local businesses through a variety of means such as mentoring, business visits and internships, as well as providing them with up to date information on the skill needs of local businesses and the variety of career opportunities available to them within the area.
The modules within the Skills Academy have been co-designed and developed by the Chamber, our partners and other businesses, ensuring that the information and support we provide is relevant and current for students right now.
We believe that the Skills Academy paves the way for a fruitful long term partnership between business and education in Doncaster.
We also believe that it will help improve the aspirations and success chances of our young people and the business community alike.
