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 with access to free tea, coffee, biscuits and a morning breakfast. We have seven training rooms which are all fitted with computers and Wi-Fi.
