We offer a wide range of subject areas, at levels to suit everyone. We aim to provide links between employers and our students, with many of our courses delivered in partnership with industry to ensure we respond to sector skills needs.
Choosing your college may be one of the biggest decisions of your life so far. You might already have an idea in mind of what you’d like to do; you may also have no idea which career path would be the right fit for you.
That’s why now is the time when you need all the information, guidance and
personal wellbeing support available to help make your choice as easy as possible.
Alongside our facilities and high-quality teaching and training, we pride ourselves on our strong employer links not only locally but nationally and internationally enabling students to gain confidence and insight into real working environments, learning first-hand about the sector they are passionate about.
So, whether you’re an artist with a passion for painting, a gamer with strong strategy and problem-solving skills or a builder who likes to get hands on and design new structures, we think there’s never been a better time for you to study at Doncaster College.
Your time is now.
Information and Guidance
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.
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.
How You’ll Study
We’re lucky to have a large, well equipped campus, which means we can spread our delivery of lessons and workshop sessions across the full week and deliver to smaller class sizes.
We use a style of education in which you will learn online as well as traditional face-to-face teaching.
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 a Doncaster College student you will benefit from access to a wide range of additional learning opportunities, including trips and visits that help to make your time at College both educational and fun.
We believe enrichments develop key social skills, as well as employability & technical skills and are designed to help you have a go at something.
We provide opportunities for our students and staff to experience life and work abroad, organise visiting international students and staff work opportunities in Scunthorpe and surrounding areas. We also support applications from international students to study with DN Colleges Group.
Since 2009 we have arranged for 300+ students and staff to experience living and working abroad, visiting places including Troyes and Perpignan in France, Linköping in Sweden, Braga in Portugal and Oulu in Finland. These projects are funded through Erasmus+.
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.
Information for Parents and Carers
Helping your child decide which option is right for them can be a tricky road to navigate, but we’re available to offer parent / carer information to help you map out their options.
Doncaster College offers a broad range of subjects and progression routes that are supported by employers in every sector. We currently have links with over 800 employers across our region and further afield, so you can be assured that your child is gaining sector knowledge that is so important to them progressing into their chosen career.
