Careers education and guidance programme

The careers education and guidance programme at Communication Specialist College Doncaster seeks to positively support students to gain the education, skills, experience and knowledge to gain meaningful employment, supported employment or voluntary work in their futures.

Students have the opportunity to access a range of Industry visits, with the aim of all students attending at least three visits in their first year at college.  Students are then invited to carry out a work experience placement. The work experience team have developed a wide network of employers who are happy to engage with the college to offer both industry visits and work experience placements.

Employer engagement activities are also arranged throughout the year, with external agencies coming in to college to talk to students.

Students will also have access to careers advice throughout their time at college. This will be arranged on an individual basis and at a time suitable for the student.

Students can request to see the Career Advisor by emailing [email protected] or by calling in to the Transition Office at any time.

The college analyses its offer using the Gatsby Benchmarks and from these creates a yearly action plan to continually improve the Careers offer and develop the roles of staff within school.

Ongoing throughout the academic year are; Employability Skills training, mock interviews, CV writing, access to a range of online resources.
