Case Studies

Alex Whitfield, HR Administrator, Go Green Ltd

"Leaving school not knowing what I wanted to do I was lucky enough to find my perfect career path a few years into my working life.

Looking back if I had the support and guidance that Doncaster Skills Academy provide I think I would of come to this decision a lot sooner and there would have been more options and routes for me to go down to get to where I am today.

I enjoy volunteering and delivering within schools as I like to think of the impact I can have with helping a young person to think about their career and what they want to do in the future. Coming from a HR background I can also provide invaluable knowledge into what businesses are looking for and what it takes to secure a job.

I would recommend getting involved with Doncaster Skills Academy as they provide essential awareness and improve the aspirations of the future working generation of Doncaster and you can have a direct impact on this."
