Work experience

Work experience is an invaluable opportunity for our students to gain an insight into and experience the world of work. We believe that learning takes place both in the classroom/workshop as well as outside experiences with employers.

All students across every subject area are supported to undertake work experience placements; the placement will be focused on developing the relevant practical and technical skills required for a profession or trade that you will be studying.

We work with a large amount of employers across various sectors within the Doncaster area, all of which offer exciting opportunities to work on real projects.

Sports Academies and TASS

Our Academy of Sport offers you an exciting sporting experience to run alongside any educational programme here at the College and University Centre. Our sporting opportunities are delivered by professional players and highly qualified coaches. Our ambition is to provide you with the developmental guidance to enhance your current skills and sporting capabilities whilst gaining an academic or vocational qualification.

We’re also proud to be able to offer Dual Career Accreditation via the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme. This is a Sport England funded partnership between athletes, education institutions, and national governing bodies of sport.

The Scheme helps athletes in education – aged 16-plus – to get the very best from their sporting and academic careers without having to choose between the two.
