The AMRC Training Centre, part of the University of Sheffield AMRC Group, provides training
in the practical and academic skills that engineering / manufacturing companies
need to compete globally, from apprenticeship through to higher education

We work with more than 240 employers across the Sheffield City Region, providing
them with qualified employees with a tailored set of skills and hands-on experience
by utilising and providing access to state-of- the-art machinery and technology.

We provide the foundation for a rewarding career in some of the world’s most
innovative industries.

Our apprenticeship programmes combine real work experience with learning and
development, both on and off the job with the opportunity to progress to higher-level
qualifications such as a foundation degree or undergraduate degree to masters and
doctorate levels as part of the University of Sheffield wider education offer.

Since we opened our doors in January 2014 we have trained a total of 789
apprentices and have won numerous awards including the Times Higher Education
Outreach Award for its work on widening participation.

The success of the centre has led to numerous visits from government ministers and
officials and new colleges have been opened based on the AMRC Training Centre model.
