Sheffield College named UK Business Hero

The Sheffield College has been named as a UK Business Hero for going the extra mile to help its local community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The UK Business Heroes Campaign aims to recognise the incredible work that organisations are doing in the most challenging of years.

Led by the British Chambers of Commerce, the campaign has the Royal stamp of approval and is backed by HRH the Countess of Wessex.

The College, which is an anchor institution in the city with more than 14,000 students a year, was selected as one of 19 UK Business Heroes in Sheffield.

Since the first lockdown in March 2020, all parts of the organisation have pulled together to enable college life and learning to continue, supporting a diverse community including 16 to 18s, adult learners and apprentices.

College staff have also cared for key workers’ children, helped make personal protective equipment for the NHS and delivered vital emergency supplies.

Angela Foulkes, Chief Executive and Principal, The Sheffield College, said: “It’s great to be recognised in the UK Business Heroes awards, thanks to the fantastic efforts of our staff supporting our students and the wider community during the pandemic.”

Matt Jackson, President, Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, added: “The Sheffield College responded above and beyond to the NHS’s call for PPE. Whilst protecting staff and students they also helped our frontline workers. Their recognition as heroes is well deserved.”
