Online Training Courses

The Source Academy offers a range of online training courses and qualifications that cover a wide range of industries including business skills and health & safety to social care and warehousing, amongst others. Online learning is a great way for individuals to bolster their CVs and demonstrate a passion for learning new skills, both of which can help to increase your chances of employment. 

For businesses, online courses are mutually beneficial as they increase the knowledge, efficiency and productivity of a company’s workforce whilst also supporting the development and career progression of the individual.  Additionally, distance learning courses are an ideal to do so in a way that is convenient and fully-flexible, free from the restrictions of set learning hours which can impact on the smooth-running of the business or the personal lives of employees. 

Commercial training courses are available in the following areas:

  • Health and Safety
  • First Aid
  • Business Skills
  • Mental Health
  • Social Care
  • Warehousing
  • Food Safety

SME Training

We understand that small-medium enterprises often face greater financial restraints than larger businesses, which can make it more difficult for them to support staff development. We provide SME training courses across various industries to support the growth of your business. Better still, many of these courses are accredited and fully-funded for businesses in the Sheffield City Region, allowing more local businesses to benefit from the same training and development that will help them to thrive.
