Chamber of Commerce-backed academy opensThe Sheffield Chamber of Commerce Business and Enterprise Academy was launched at The Sheffield College last month, offering students the opportunity to be mentored by Sheffield Chamber of Commerce members.

It is believed to be the first time that a British Chamber of Commerce has worked with a further-education college in this way.

Angela Foulkes, principal of The Sheffield College (, said: “We are thrilled to launch a national first with Sheffield Chamber of Commerce that will enable our students to learn business skills from employers and inspire them to go further in their careers.”

Steve Manley, president of the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce (and joint managing director of Universal Office Products), said: “I became president in 2018 to encourage youth enterprise, because I know the importance of championing young entrepreneurs.

“I became involved with Young Enterprise — a non-profit organisation working with schools and colleges to inspire the next generation of young entrepreneurs – while a student myself.

“I am looking forward to delivering presentations, workshops, support and advice to the next generation, along with leading businesses in the Sheffield City Region.”

Sheffield Chamber of Commerce has invited all its 1,000 members to help students to develop business and enterprise skills.

Employers will provide industry placements and visits, as well as work experience and curriculum projects, and they will assist students with CV writing and interview sessions.

Specialist speakers will also visit the college to provide an insight into a particular industry or role.

Be seen in all the right places!
