Supporting local learning

We continue to improve local skill and business by offering and supporting top training programmes in the local area.

The Source

The Source Skills Academy is an award winning flagship centre that provides state of the art training, development and conferencing facilities for all sectors of the community. Established as a charity, the facilities include a gym, café, and a mock shop for students.

For over ten years, The Source has built a national reputation for excellence in retail and customer service training and is the only Centre of Vocational Excellence for Retail in South Yorkshire. It’s recognised as one of the 20 Best Small Companies to Work For in the UK.

Apprenticeship Scheme

We have recently added more talented young people to our team – graduates from our successful apprentice scheme.

After successfully completing their apprenticeships, nine went on to secure employment here at Meadowhall in various areas of the business including: Customer Services, the Oasis Dining Quarter, Marketing, Security, Human Resources and Property Services. 

Some took it upon themselves to progress their positions by applying for new roles at the centre, against external applicants and graduates. One recent apprentice applied for a role in customer service - he beat nearly 300 applicants to get the job!
