A Positive Alternative To Exclusion

At Open Cast we’re passionate about positive achievement.  We work hard to provide the support and training that young people need to re-engage with mainstream education, employment and training.  It’s our job to help young people realise their potential to build a better future - because young people are the future.

All support programmes and training courses provide a seamless fit with existing training structures and allow an easy fit for all referrals.  We support young people aged 13 – 25 from across the Borough of Doncaster.      

Based in central Doncaster, we’re accessible to all.  Our support programmes, accredited training courses, work based learning, workshops and events are run from The Base:

  • Our Activity Centre, The Base in Marshgate, is equipped with a training kitchen, beauty therapy rooms, DJ booth, creche and counselling and training rooms.
