As the UK Jobless rate nears a six year low, Club Doncaster Foundation are delivering a brand new programme working with unemployed adults within the borough to try and increase those figures further.
, a new 6 week programme is being delivered that will give participants the opportunity of achieving up to ten nationally recognised qualifications.The Coach & Steward AcademyEntitled
At the end of the programme participants work towards achieving employment as a match day steward or gaining other skilled employment.
Liam Scully, Chief Executive of Club Doncaster Foundation said, “The programme is designed to help unemployed people gain accredited qualifications and create a platform to build both skills and improve the confidence of participants.
From our pilot cohort 44% have been put forward with job interviews with Doncaster Rovers, whilst another 19% have gained employment within other sectors, we only expect these figures to grow.”
Official figures show that UK unemployment is at close to a six year low of 2.08 million and it is hoped the programme will further help towards reducing unemployment rates within Doncaster.
