About Us

Doncaster Council has implemented the Ambition Doncaster programme commencing May 2015. Ambition Doncaster will operate across the Borough and provide support to 18-24 year old Job Seeker Allowance claimants during the 12 to 18 weeks they participate.

Part of a city region-wide programme called Ambition SCR, Ambition Doncaster is a local employment programme for 18-24 year olds that will provide; tailored support; employability skills, work experience; and, ultimately sustained employment.

Individuals accessing Ambition Doncaster will have a minimum of 12 weeks to a maximum of 18 weeks (depending on need) within which to find employment.

Our service provider will deliver a unique and inspirational employability provision (the Academy) at weeks 2 and 3 of Ambition Doncaster that will engage, motivate, up-skill and enhance the employability prospects of clients accessing Ambition Doncaster.

Training will be provided in team working, communication, customer service, time management, confidence, CV writing, interview skills, problem solving, presentation skills, commercial awareness and social media.

Bus and train travel fares are covered whilst you are on the Ambition Doncaster programme.

Once you have completed the programme and are in employment, you will receive up to 26 weeks of ‘In work Support’.

If you are 18-24 years old and a JSA claimant and would like to be referred to the Ambition Doncaster programme then contact your Job Centre Advisor or telephone the Ambition Doncaster team on 01302 735827 or email ambitiondoncaster@doncaster.gov.uk.
