For businesses

Visit The Doncaster Promise to discover all the ways in which businesses can engage with education in Doncaster.

We are also encouraging businesses to get involved in the following ways:

  • Encourage your staff to speak about their careers in schools or at careers fairs. The social mobility partnership South Yorkshire Futures has created an online talent bank for those who can support young people locally with careers information, advice and guidance and raise aspirations. For young people to hear from people from their own local area who have gone on to achieve success can be truly inspirational. Contact southyorkshirefutures@shu.ac.uk
  • Encourage your staff to become school governors. Governors make an important contribution within local communities by playing an integral role in shaping the future of Doncaster’s children. Schools who are in challenging circumstances and in deprived areas often struggle to recruit governors. You can find out what it means to be a governor here and find vacancies here.
