I'm thrilled to introduce you to The Sheffield College's Employer Skills Academies.
Initially launched in 2019, our Employer Skills Academies are part of an innovative new programme that allows local and national employers to influence the curriculum of our students, whilst also helping to develop students with a brilliant understanding of the working world.
Students from each cohort are hand-selected to join the academy for their area, meaning that employers are able to work with, shape and eventually recruit from, some of the best upcoming talent in their sectors.
Both academy sponsors and students benefit from a range of activities such as workshops/seminars, workplace visits, training activities, working on collaborative projects and much more.
If you want to find out more about any of the academies, or explore an opportunity to collaborate with us, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
