Benefits to Businesses

According to YouGov research (October 2009), over 80% of people are more likely to use a business if it offers Apprenticeships to young people, and 94% think it is important that companies support young people by taking on apprentices in the recession.

Our Experience

Doncaster College has a long history of working with the local business community to train and develop our young people through Apprenticeships. We offer a variety of placement opportunities in many different areas – Apprenticeships are not just for those who want to pursue the traditional sectors such as construction and trades.
