Pathways to Progression (also referred to as Ambition) is a programme partly 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 - 24
  • Living in Doncaster
  • Not in education, employment or training

Who are we?

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 the range of opportunities that 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?

  • Tailored 1:1 support to overcome hurdles and help to achieve career goals
  • Help to develop an understanding of the opportunities through further education/learning
  • Advice on how to job search and what is expected in the workplace, such as employer expectations, rights, and responsibilities
