The idea behind the Doncaster Skills Academy is to connect the skills needed by local employers with the skills of young people leaving the school system. This is crucial to both supporting young people make the best employment choices for themselves and for the benefit of local businesses and the wider economy.
The purpose of this event is to help businesses:
Understand what Doncaster Skills Academy is and its purpose
Learn how it can benefit your business to recruit a stronger workforce and have the opportunity to feedback on the skills/ recruitment challenges your business faces
Hear about the work we are involved with this academic year, our vision for the future and how we are supporting schools through our work with the Enterprise Adviser Network
Opportunity to discuss any skills gaps that affects your business and the types of values you would be looking for in a young person
Doncaster Skills Academy was created in 2014 by Doncaster Chamber to help address the ‘skills gap’ in response to feedback from the local business community. Doncaster Skills Academy set about to better equip schools and their young people with the skills and information they require ready for entering into the world of work.
