THE winner of the TV show The Apprentice has unveiled a new business centre at a college in Yorkshire.
Yasmina Siadatan officially opened The Sheffield College Centre for Business and Enterprise as part of a speech to businesses, kickstarting this week’s MADE festival in the city.
She said: “I would like to congratulate The Sheffield College for identifying the importance for businesses to invest in continued professional development and training. Learning and upgrading makes business sense. Training adds flexibility and ensures you keep productive, qualified workers who will help your business succeed.”
Sheffield city college’s principal Julie Byrne, said: “We are delighted to kickstart this fantastic national festival with the launch of our new business centre. I’d like to thank Yasmina for supporting us and sharing her insight. We play a major role underpinning the local economy. Our courses will enable individuals and businesses to gain the skills they need to grow.”
The Sheffield College Centre for Business and Enterprise is offering professional courses including part-time masterclasses, workshops and accredited qualifications, in more than 35 subjects.
The initiative is part of wider moves by the college – to support the local economy where small and medium sized businesses comprise 95 per cent of Sheffield’s business base.
