Pathways to Progression

Pathways to Progression is a new programme funded by the European Social Fund (ESF). The programme is designed to support young people in Doncaster to realise their potential and help them understand the steps to take to achieve their chosen career.

We work with people who are:

  • Age 16 - 18 year old
  • Living in Doncaster
  • Not in education, employment or training

About us

Pathways to Progression are a small team of qualified and experienced Career Advisers. Together we work to support our young people and boost self-esteem to help reduce youth unemployment within Doncaster. We are local so we understand what opportunities are available on your doorstep.

How do we support our young people?

Everyone's career aspirations are different. That's why we work with our young people on a one-to-one basis to provide the best support to help take those first steps toward the future. We will listen and spend time getting to know your interests and passions and will work to create a personalised action plan to help achieve agreed goals.

Why join the programme?

Through Pathways to Progression we will:

  • Build tailored support for someone who is struggling to help achieve career goals
  • Develop an understanding of the workplace, employer expectations, rights and responsibilities
  • Work at a young person's pace, to create goals that will suit their needs

The journey starts here

Pathways to Progression is open to all young people who meet the above criteria. A young person, parent, carer or professional can refer to the programme by contacting the team today.
