AN organisation that helps young managers develop their personal and business skills has launched its own academy in Sheffield.
The initiative – known as the JCI Sheffield Academy – is the brainchild of the city’s branch of Junior Chamber International.
The Academy will support personal and professional development and incorporate a recognised framework, enabling it to count towards Continuing Professional Development and other professional development awards, and was launched at the Wig and Pen.
JCI Sheffield’s president, Kate Senter, who is internal communications manager at leading law firm Irwin Mitchell’s office in the city, said: “The launch was a fantastic way to bring together existing and new members to hear about the academy and plans for JCI Sheffield in 2011.
“The team in Sheffield is growing, with members from a range of sectors able to network and forge links.
“It’s an exciting time and we have some fantastic events and training sessions lined up.”
