Menu of Services
(KS3 & KS4)
Opportunities Doncaster have worked closely with the Careers Hub to design our menu of services for this academic year. Your secondary school can choose to benefit from 4 careers activities* worth £2000, for just £750 from your Enterprise Coordinator grant. These activities must be delivered by August 2021.
This year, all our activities are mapped against the Gatsby Benchmarks, the CDI Framework and the Skills Builder Framework.
We believe this makes it easier for you as the school’s Careers Leader to plan how our activities complement your wider careers programme in a way which is balanced, progressive and tailored to the needs of your students. The CDI Framework outlines learning outcome statements across 17 important areas of careers, employability and enterprise education grouped under three main headings:
Developing yourself through careers, employability and enterprise education
Self-awareness, self-determination and self-improvement underpin aspiration, ambition and achievement in careers, learning and the world of work
Learning about careers and the world of work
Exploring, investigating and understanding the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences that careers and the world of work have to offer is a prerequisite for successful planning and development.
Developing your career management, employability and enterprise skills
Developing a range of career management, employability and enterprise skills is the key to meeting challenges, making progress and managing change.
We have grouped our activities under each of these headings to show which area of career learning is being targeted by each.

In the instance of the scheduled workshops needing to be rearranged by the school, Opportunities Doncaster will do its upmost to support the change however, this would be dependent on our prior scheduled planner.
