Made in Sheffield is a demand driven, employer-led approach based on developing the skills that matter in the world of work. The scheme is based on a unique partnership of employers and schools, led by Sheffield City Council (SCC) and the Cutlers Company and we have tested, learned and adapted strategies and materials based on feedback, evidence and research. We have three years experience and are now working successfully with ten employment sectors and ten schools and two colleges.

o Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Sector
o Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
o Sheffield Children’s Hospital
o Computer Science and Digital Sector
o Retail Sector
o Care Sector
o Arts and Cultural Sector
o Sports, Health and Well-being Sector
o Construction Sector
o NEW South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service

o All Saints Catholic High School
o Bradfield School
o Firth Park Academy
o Fir Vale School
o Forge Valley School
o Handsworth Grange Community Sports College
o Meadowhead School Academy Trust
o Outwood Academy City
o Stocksbridge High School
o Westfield School
o Yewlands Academy
o Longley Park Sixth Form College
o Sheffield College

We are currently training 500 student ambassadors, who experience a high quality enrichment programme. These student ‘Ambassadors’ promote the business sectors to their peers as well as showcasing the potential of our school students to businesses. We are also working with Business Champions who connect the school to the world of work. ​ ​

At the end of the programme the ambassadors receive an employer endorsed Skills Passport, which is awarded by the Cutlers Company and we now have student ambassadors on apprenticeships in the engineering sector and the NHS.
