    As part of national Learning Disability Awareness Week, Opportunities Doncaster is highlighting that the new initiative launching next month will support people from all backgrounds and abilities with careers advice, no matter what career path they may be considering.
    Launching on 16 July, Opportunities Doncaster is a new and exciting organisation, co-created by Doncaster Chamber and Doncaster Council, in Partnership with the Opportunity Area Programme, to bring business and education together. 
    “From nursing to teaching, engineering to sport, and law to veterinary science – in fact any sector – there are disabled people working in every imaginable field”, says Andy Hibbitt, Skills & Education Director, Doncaster Chamber, and business lead for Opportunities Doncaster.
    “Working with business, education and partners, Opportunities Doncaster wants to give all young people an insight into what an exciting career in Doncaster can look like.”
    “The launch of Opportunities Doncaster on 16 July will give interested parties the first chance to come and talk to us and other like-minded people about the many opportunities and benefits of getting involved.”
    The launch event will also showcase each of the partner organisations who are working to improve careers opportunities across the borough. Start Doncaster is a new online careers platform that will improve the digital connectivity between the region’s schools, colleges, universities and employers. Attendees will get to view and navigate the new careers platform during the evening. 
    The launch event will be held:
    • Date: 16 July 2019
    • Time: 5.30pm – 8pm
    • Venue: Hilton Garden Inn, Doncaster
