Our partnership network

Who makes up the HEPP Partnership?

HEPP brings together all those with an interest in promoting higher level education and skills to young people and adults across Sheffield City Region.

The skills gap in Sheffield City Region can only be met by higher rates of progression to university or higher level training, a challenge which can't easily be met by individual organisations. Partnership seems the most logical response."

Jackie Powell, HEPP Partnership Development Manager
