Who we support Image

Supporting South Yorkshire

We support all businesses in the South Yorkshire region, irrespective of size.
We work across all sectors, helping you find an apprenticeship that meets with your needs.

We’re a central hub for anyone who is considering an apprenticeship, or those who support people who might wish to learn more about apprenticeships (e.g Schools, Parents, Careers Advisors etc.) as a career opportunity, and offer advice and guidance through our learning and development experts.

Working with you, we identify skills needs and areas where an apprentice would add value.

Not only do employers gain an apprentice to their team when they work with us, they also get a dedicated team of expert advisors who will provide them with impartial advice to enable them to make the best-informed decisions throughout the apprentices journey.

Supporting our people

Apprenticeships are for anyone who is looking to train, grow or even re-train in a new industry.

An apprenticeship is a job with a salary. Apprentices will work for an employer and get paid to learn and develop to do a job to required standards.

Apprentices will complete real-life tasks and assessments as part of their apprenticeship and receive a nationally recognised qualification upon completion.

We’re a central hub for everything you need to know when it comes to apprenticeships. Our team consist of learning and development experts with vast experience in the sector, a perfect combination to offer support and guidance.

Apprenticeships are about creating better career opportunities and providing pathways to fulfilling roles that have the potential to create better incomes.

Supporting our economy

We’re based at the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority offices in Sheffield, and we work in collaboration with the South Yorkshire Colleges Partnership and South Yorkshire Providers Network. We provide impartial guidance to connect employers with the best training provider for their needs.

We’re passionate about the South Yorkshire economy and building our workforce of tomorrow, now.

Apprenticeships are becoming increasingly more popular and there is a real appetite in the region for people wanting to not only receive a high-quality learning programme but to also train on the job and learn real life industry skills.
