The Sheffield College has been shortlisted for three awards which celebrate excellence in the education sector in the North.

“Our staff are going above and beyond to ensure that our students get the very best experience and I am extremely proud of them.”

The employer engagement award shortlisting is in recognition of the college’s trailblazing employer skills academies, which ensure that students develop the skills and industry-specific knowledge that employers need.

The innovation award shortlisting is for a digital development programme implemented in July 2020 to boost staff’s confidence and skills.

The programme was led internally by college staff.

The digital and e-learning team and learning development coaches delivered training and support sessions to develop staff’s digital skills.

The social mobility award shortlisting is for the college’s Shape Your Future programme, an inclusive tutorial, personal development and enrichment programme

The Educate North Awards winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Midland Hotel in Manchester on April 7.
