South Yorkshire Futures one year on
Friday 31 August 2018
Sheffield Hallam University leads a unique social mobility programme that has the ambition to improve educational attainment and the wellbeing of young learners in South Yorkshire, a region which continues to face significant challenges in educational attainment.
The programme addresses three crucial areas of education: early year's education preparation, performance and retention of teachers in primary and secondary schools, and routes into higher education and employment. In taking this collaborative vision and building on the University's highly respected experience of increasing access to higher education, it is hoped that young people from the most disadvantaged communities across South Yorkshire are able to benefit from the same opportunities as their peers in other areas of the UK.
This month, the programme reflects on the impact of its work with a 'one year on' event hosted by Sheffield City Region Mayor, Dan Jarvis MBE MP at the City Campus which is open to alumni, programme partners and friends of the University.
