Success, determination and new directions


The Source Skills Academy has something App-y to celebrate!

Ten of its talented apprentices have been shortlisted in the Sheffield City Region Apprenticeship Awards.

They are finalists across six hotly-contested categories. Three are in the running for the coveted Rising Star Award and a city business which The Source has successfully placed seven apprentices with is up for SME Employer Of The Year. 

Medical and Legal Admin Services (MLAS) provides administration and logistics services for expert witnesses in court cases and has found young apprentices bring a new dimension to its team.

The finals are on September 23 and The Source is sponsoring the night’s Kickstart/Apprenticeship Award.

“On the evening we aim to show businesses and apprentices how we nurture talent and are determined to help the region overcome the challenges of the pandemic,” said Dale Robinson, Director of Business Development.

Since launching in 2003 The Source has got thousands into work via apprenticeships, traineeships and training, delivered numerous government-funded programmes to businesses and hosted thousands of events, attracting over a million visitors.

It has recently rebranded and restructured, making it easier for businesses and individuals to access help.

Community and training work has been strengthened with a new Adult Learning and Community Team now running programmes such as Steps Into Work through the Skills Support for Employment contract, Skills Support for the Workforce and Commercial Training including First Aid and Health and Safety.

Sector-based recruitment academies have also been set up to get more people into jobs in Hospitality, Care, Admin, Warehousing, Sales/Marketing and IT.
