Sheffield Hallam is proud to be a national leader in creating opportunities for disadvantaged young people.
Despite this, consistent high-quality education and skills provision remains a challenge in our region, and overall levels of attainment are mixed. Young people and adult learners do not have the same opportunities as their peers in other parts of the country.
Our social mobility programme, South Yorkshire Futures, has already been successful in securing new funding and improving collaboration within the region. This includes working with our regional colleges to move towards a truly joined-up skills strategy for our region. We will continue with this partnership whilst prioritising new and important education and skills commitments.
