Sheffield (old) | People Plus


Our Sheffield Academy offers pre-employment training and Sector Based Work Academies (SBWAs) in conjunction with the DWP. All of the SBWAs offer our learners the opportunity to undertake training relevant to vacancies being advertised with a guaranteed job interview on completion of the course. Work experience placements are also available.

Our courses are delivered in a friendly atmosphere whether in a classroom environment or through distance learning, which allows you to complete the training within the comfort of your own home, with regular contact from one of our tutors.

If you choose to do a course that is classroom based you will benefit from access to free tea, coffee, biscuits and a morning breakfast. We have seven training rooms which are all fitted with computers and Wi-Fi. Every month we celebrate our ‘Learner of the Month’ where a learner is nominated by their trainer to receive a £50 voucher.
