Institute for Lifelong Learning Discover course.

Introduction

Discover is a FREE award winning short course, designed to inspire adults who haven’t been to university to progress with their learning. The upcoming course is delivered on Wednesday between 10am and 1pm. It will focus on themes that link into the subjects offered by the Department for Lifelong Learning.

Delivered in partnership with Museums Sheffield and Sheffield Association for the Voluntary Teaching of English (SAVTE), the course gives a real flavour of the University experience, giving participants a chance to take part in a range of small group activities and discussions. It also provides vital information, advice and guidance such as how to apply to university and how to finance your studies.

What makes the course innovative – and award-winning - is that the sessions feature discussion stimulated by ‘objects’ – objects that may be of personal significance to participants, or objects that form part of Museums Sheffield’s vast store of treasures from around the world.

There are no formal entry requirements, but please note that:

  • participants for whom English is their second language must be able to speak and write the language to at least ESOL Level 2
  • participants who have already gained a degree are not eligible for this course.

University of Sheffield Enterprise

Skill Build Sessions

Skill Build Sessions

Skill Build does pretty much exactly what it says on the tin: it builds skills.

Through a series of engaging weekly lectures, Skill Build provides a non-intensive way of acquiring and developing useful enterprise skills and enhancing your employability.

During the Autumn semester, sessions focus on enterprise, dealing with topics like time management, group work, ideas generation and project management, while the Spring semester concentrates on entrepreneurship. These later sessions discuss more business-focused topics such as business planning, marketing and legal matters.

Whether you’re a member of staff, a student, or from the local area and unaffiliated with the university, if you’re looking to build your employability and enterprise skills, Skill Build is the programme for you. Even if you aren’t a budding entrepreneur, these sessions will prove really handy in both full and part-time employment, encouraging you to reflect and build upon your skills.

Sessions are FREE and open to all, running weekly in The Diamond. All you need to do is sign up to register your attendance, and then just come along and absorb the knowledge.

To check out when the next session will be running, and to sign up to attend, take a look at our events section now.
