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.

Case Studies

Jade Bancroft, Education Officer, Yorkshire Wildlife Park

"Volunteering for the Doncaster Skills Academy enables us to get out in to the community to build on partnerships with local schools. The students get very excited when they see us on the day which means that the sessions we do with them are always really engaging and rewarding. The visits enable us to link the work we do onsite at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park especially around STEM subjects and careers. They are always very well organised and the staff are very welcoming."
