Develop your workforce

Working with Sheffield Hallam on staff development will equip your team with cutting-edge knowledge, versatile skills and a conscientious approach to their work.

We have an outstanding track record in this area. We offer staff training that can range from afternoon workshops to full, industry-centred degrees and bespoke courses.

Short courses

Short courses can last from a few hours to a few days. They often address common continuing professional development topics such as leadership or mentoring.

But they can also be more specialist. In the past, we’ve given training sessions on behavioural change, and even in niche areas such as lightbulb technology.

Whatever your field, our short courses produce long-term results.

Longer courses

As an applied university, our courses are all linked with industry.

Your staff can therefore undertake an advanced programme such as an MSc or PhD which will be wholly relevant to their position — gaining cutting edge knowledge and skills.

Our longer-term courses help your staff, and your business, make a greater impact.

Higher and Degree Apprenticeships

We also offer unique opportunities for businesses to create their own talent pipeline, which we develop in collaboration with employers.

Sheffield Hallam is home to the National Centre of Excellence for Degree Apprenticeships. Our innovative courses increase business’ productivity and performance by enabling them to attract and develop talent.

Your staff will earn while they learn, acquiring specialist skills that relate directly to your organisation. While they do so, they’ll gain the qualifications and credentials they need to excel within their industry.

With specialist subjects ranging from leadership and management to digital and IT, our apprenticeships are a great way to develop, retain and upskill staff.

Bespoke courses

We develop bespoke courses for specific organisations. We’ll work with you to identify your needs, before designing and delivering a tailor-made development package that meets them.

The skills your employees learn will allow them to drive real organisational change — and ultimately improve your bottom line.

The team at Sheffield Hallam were fantastic in the development and delivery of our manager training programme. They ensured the programme met our objectives and the delivery techniques were engaging to managers from a range of public sector organisations.
