News: The Source Skills Academy opens in Rotherham town centre


The Source Skills Academy Rotherham opens this week, a new initiative designed to support local businesses and help expand Rotherham town centre.

Based at Meadowhall, The Source Skills Academy is a flagship centre providing state of the art training and development facilities with a focus on the retail and service sector.

The new venture on Rotherham's High Street, is designed to offer advice, guidance and training services to Rotherham businesses to increase skills levels and to support trade in the town centre, attracting new investment.

Local businesses can access a range of opportunities, from Apprenticeships, supporting staff in the workplace with flexible learning, to various training courses including Mary Portas Masterclasses and customer service courses. The service also links with other Rotherham-based support networks and advisors to offer a wealth of guidance for all aspects of their business.

Council Leader Roger Stone will unveil the new Source Skills Academy Hub on Friday as part of the town's regeneration strategy. The project is part-funded by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, the Skills Funding Agency and The Source Skills Academy.

Councillor Roger Stone said: "This new Hub is an exciting development for Rotherham. Not only will businesses be able to access free support and guidance, but the new site is based right in the heart of Rotherham.

"The Source will co-ordinate the new site, with experienced professionals on hand to aid the development of local businesses. I'm sure people will be pleased with what The Source Skills Academy Rotherham has to offer."

Ann Cadman, managing director at The Source Skills Academy, added: "The Source was established in 2003 to support businesses across South Yorkshire with training and recruitment guidance and we have come a long way since our initial launch. We are now opening a brand new site on the High Street that will offer dedicated support to Rotherham businesses.

"This is a very exciting development for The Source Skills Academy and we are keen to work in partnership with Rotherham organisations with the goal of improving business performance and maximising opportunities in this very difficult climate."
