Careers and Post 16

Careers and post-16

Careers Hub

This has been funded by the Doncaster Opportunity Area. Secondary schools and special schools are eligible for support.

The hub brings together careers leads with employers, universities and providers to develop and share best practice in careers education, information, advice and guidance. A package of over £10,000 of funding and access to emerging best practice from the other hub networks across the country. This requires an investment of career leader time in order to access funding, but also to realise the full benefit of this programme. For more information contact Lee.Douglas@doncaster.gov.uk

Doncaster Careers Website (Start)

This has been funded by the Doncaster Opportunity Area. Secondary schools and post-16 providers are eligible for support.

We have selected U-Explore to deliver a Doncaster careers advice website. This will be based on their ‘Start’ website, which many schools in Doncaster already use. The focus on Doncaster specifically enables the site to be tailored to our local employers, local young people and to the growth sectors in the borough. For more information contact Danielle.Adams@doncaster.gov.uk.

Post-16 Working Group

This is led by the Doncaster Opportunity Area. Secondary schools and post-16 providers are invited to join.

This network will look to identify and share best practice around post-16; to support improved teaching and collaboration in this space. Opportunity Area funding will be allocated to projects that this group develops. This group will also help to implement the 2018 Post-16 Review.
