Club Doncaster have partnered with new specialist education provider Harrison College.
Harrison College is a specialist, post-16 institution based in Doncaster and is supporting young people aged 16-25. Harrison College is working with groups of young people that have, in the past, had limited options for higher education, and has welcomed 28 students though its doors this September.
Not only are students given the opportunity to develop their self-esteem and self-confidence through enrichment activities, but they are also following an academic study programme to give them the key to sustainable employment. The study programme focuses on business, enterprise and employability skills, creating the young leaders and entrepreneurs of the future.
In the past week, Harrison College has developed their ‘Eat Well, Think Better’ campaign, forming partnerships with FoodAwareCIC and Morrisons, ensuring that all students can access healthy food for breakfast and lunch.
The college has also been shortlisted for the Nasen Awards 16 -25 provision with winners to be announced on October 16, 2020.
Gemma Peebles, chief executive and principal said: “I started this journey in February 2019 based in my home kitchen and it is fantastic to see the impact that we are having already on our group of young people.
“I am incredibly proud of what has been achieved by the team at Harrison College - not only have we received approval from the Secretary of State for Education, been shortlisted for a Nasen Award but, we are also already seeing progress from our young people. Harrison College is an incredible place to be and I get great pleasure in watching the young people in our charge develop each and every day.”
Harrison College is open for applications for places in September 2021. If you are interested in what we are achieving at the College, take a look at the website or use the contact form to arrange a visit.
