Welcome to The South Yorkshire Apprenticeship Hub

About us

Welcome to The South Yorkshire Apprenticeship Hub – a brand-new service supporting businesses and individuals to make more informed and better choices about apprenticeships within Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley.

Who are apprenticeships for?

Apprenticeships are open to almost everyone over the age of 16.

For businesses, they provide the opportunity to attract new talent into your business or upskill and retain existing talent, creating a skilled workforce for the future by ensuring employees are equipped with the skills they need to thrive in the long term. The growth and success of any business depends on its workforce and equipping the right people with the right skills can ultimately futureproof the organisation.

For individuals, an apprenticeship provides the opportunity to either start, redirect or progress your career. Apprentices include school and college leavers, university graduates, people looking to return to work and practicing professionals.

The opportunities are endless with apprenticeships and are a perfect way to gain real-life industry experience whilst in paid employment.

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what South Yorkshire Mayor Oliver Coppard said about us:

That's what this new Apprenticeship Hub is all about; offering people, organisations, and businesses a 'one-stop shop' for all the information and support they need to get the right skills, in the right place, so we can all benefit from a better, bigger South Yorkshire economy.

South Yorkshire doesn't just need a bigger economy, we need a better economy. But if we're going to get there, and if everyone is going to be able to access the jobs and opportunities that new economy will bring, we need to make sure people have the right education and skills.
