EduCativ Posted July 18, 2020 Share Posted July 18, 2020 Doncaster College and University Centre is a significant provider of further education in South Yorkshire. It is also one of the largest providers of higher education in this region. Our main Hub campus offers a wide range of further education courses, vocational and academic, apprenticeships and progression routes into Higher Education. At Doncaster College, we do things differently! We are one of the most significant post 16 education providers in South Yorkshire, offering a wide range of vocational college courses and apprenticeships, with progression routes right up to University level. Our Hub campus sits in the heart of the town center, providing excellent industry-standard facilities and experienced teaching to ensure you gain the skills needed to take your next step. Throughout their programs of study, students are provided opportunities to identify, discuss, and research financial aspects of their chosen curriculum area. Financial education is also delivered through a series of e-learning modules through our Tutorial provision, providing self-directed learning. This is supported by our Student Progress and Performance Tutor team. Events and activities are held during the year to engage our students with financial education. We work with industry partners to provide real-life, relevant examples of finance and provide up-to-date information and guidance to prepare them for life in modern Britain. As a College, we also have an annual Enterprise competition for students to take part in to develop business and financial skills by developing a product or service. Feedback and information are collected from students through focus groups, surveys, and Student Parliament to provide two-way communication and help build the future relevant curriculum. As an accredited Young Enterprise Centre of Excellence, Financial Champions are centrally located to direct and promote financial knowledge and education. This is supported by the continuous development of our delivered teaching content and internal training delivered to our colleagues. Doncaster College is the first college in England and Wales to be awarded as a Centre of Excellence in financial education, after successfully embedding the subject into our curriculum. The Centre of Excellence program has a proven track record in helping young people understand more about money and personal finance.
