Study and development options for adults aged 19+. We fully support all adults who are looking to return to education, whether they’re looking for a change in career, an opportunity to up-skill or just fancy a new hobby.
At Doncaster College, we offer a range of adult education courses across GCSEs, further education, vocational qualifications, higher education and industry-related short courses. We welcome students of all ages and backgrounds and offer a supportive, inclusive environment for those returning to education.
We also work with local employers to provide short courses and qualifications to upskill staff, including workplace training.
Whether the goal is career development, the desire to learn a new skill or to turn a hobby into a job, our adult education students develop the knowledge, skills and qualifications they need to meet and exceed their aspirations.
Supporting your student journey
Your Personal Development
As a Doncaster College student you will benefit from access to skills building as part of your programme of study and plenty of support to help you throughout your time in College.
During our most recent Ofsted inspection, we were graded Outstanding for Personal Development.
Dependent on your circumstances, you may be eligible to apply for support if you are enrolling onto a course with Doncaster College.
Applying online is quick and easy and you do not need to be enrolled to start your application.
As you make a decision about your course choice and ultimately the college you decide to study at, it is really important that you receive impartial and unbiased information, advice and guidance to help you make the right decisions about future choices.
English, Maths and Digital Skills
The majority of careers require good English, maths and digital skills. As a result, these essential subjects are embedded into every course at every level.
When it comes to digital skills this can worry some people, some of that worry might be around access to a laptop or computer at home.
Lack of access to relevant technology is known as digital poverty, we have worked really hard to ensure no Doncaster College student is disadvantaged as a result of lack of access to digital technology or the internet at home.
