  • Need


    Doncaster Rovers Education Foundation is part of the Community Foundation’s charitable trust. We specialise in further education courses and our core purpose is to provide innovative and challenging learning experiences for young people who are ‘underachieving’ and offer them engaging education programmes designed to tap into the skills they possess. Our programmes are designed to raise standards in English, Maths and ICT, along with developing self-esteem and confidence.


    Gaining sponsorship will enable us to provide kit and transport for our young people; having the sponsorship will enable our learners to look professional and give us the readily available transport for fixtures both peak and off-peak. Your sponsorship will also mean we can expand the team further and look to add ad hoc friendly fixtures; these options are currently out of the question as we simply cannot afford to travel if it is not necessary.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To provide 17 students with an exemplary education in order for them to gain a BTEC Level 3 Diploma.


    » We have a weekly timetablke where learners are taught and train in order to meet the needs of the qualification requirements.

    What success will look like

    All 17 learners completing their full qualification.

  • Impact


    Learners will be able to progress onto university should they wish to, or lookf or appropriate employment in the sports industry.


    Our programmes are designed to work with 'disengaged learners' in order to inspire and motivate them to get engaged in education. There is always a risk of these learners becoming disenegaged again.


    We will document our successes on the community website www.drfc-community.co.uk, and the DRFC match day programme. As well as sharing our successes with the public through regular press releases.
