Forty jobs are set to be created with Doncaster’s planned new sixth form college in Auckley, and it is anticipated that the number will rise to 100 over the next three years.
New College Doncaster, to be sited on playing fields adjacent to Hayfield Lane, will be for 16 to 19 year old students and will employ 28 teaching staff, nine support staff and catering and cleaning teams.
Leon Riley, Principal Designate of New College Doncaster, said: “We aim to belaying the first brick for the new building this Summer. As well as working with current year 10 pupils and their families so that they are aware of what will be on offer at New College Doncaster,we are also working on our recruitment plans for the venue, which will open in September 2017.”
New College Doncaster will provide post-16 learning options for young people from across the borough and is intended as a dynamic centre for education at that level, supporting achievement, aspiration and progression.
Mr Riley added: “September 2017 might seem a long way away but believe me, it isn’t. We’ll be starting our recruitment drive later on this year and are very pleased to be creating 40 new posts in Doncaster. As the college grows there are plans to create more jobs.”
Parents of year 10 students now considering their sixth form education are encouraged to visit the NewCollege Doncaster website and register their interest in being kept informed about the 32 A-levels and vocational courses which will be on offer.
The proposal for New College Doncaster received Government approval in 2015. To keep informed of its news visit www.ncdoncaster.ac.uk, twitter @ncdoncaster or on Facebook at Facebook.com/ncdoncaster
