Business Advantage

The Sheffield College is the largest provider of work-based courses in Sheffield and the surrounding areas.

Our aim is to equip the city’s people with the skills that today’s employers want their workforce to have. This year alone we have helped almost 20,000 people across the Sheffield City Region to fulfil their potential, supporting employers and the local economy.

We have just invested £15.6 million in two flagship centres for Engineering & Manufacturing and Creative Industries – building on the success of our previous £65 million City Campus investment.

Our Business Advantage Team work with businesses of all sizes to ensure they maximise the benefits investing in their workforce can bring. We currently deliver Apprenticeships in over 30 subjects across the Sheffield City Region ranging from Accountancy to Dental Nursing, along with a fantastic choice of professional and higher level courses.

“We work closely with employers of all sizes and have developed study programmes and progression routes, underpinned by an investment of almost twenty million pounds in new facilities, to ensure our students and apprentices have the technical, professional and personal skills they need. By building long-term  relationships with employer's to meet their training and skills development requirements, we can help transform their performance and provide our students with productive and rewarding careers" Paul Corcoran, Chief Executive, The Sheffield College
