From 2019 to 2021 we will be delivering the ESF Pathways Programme in Sheffield. Part funded by the European Social Fund, the Pathways Programme is aimed at improving employability skills and supporting unemployed and economically inactive people facing additional barriers to employment, towards and into work.
Opportunity Sheffield - employment and skills service

We are Opportunity Sheffield - the employment and skills service in Sheffield City Council.

We help create job opportunities and break down barriers to employment, and help local businesses grow and develop a skilled workforce. We also give advice about financial incentives to employers for creating vacancies and apprenticeships.

Last year we engaged with over 4000 individuals and helped 2000 people get into work. Our programmes include Sheffield's Working, Sheffield 100 Apprenticeship Scheme, Talent Sheffield and Skills Made Easy.

We work with businesses of all sizes and from all sectors – giving them advice and helping upskill their workforce.
