Even before the advent of UFI(Universities For Learning) / Learndirect in 1998, Sheffield has been at the heart of learning technologies and solutions for the education sector, and a strong ecosystem has evolved over the last twenty years or so.
Sheffield’s investment in the creative sector, after the decline in the traditional coal mining and steel industry, is paying dividends. From the traditional music, film, theatre, and arts through to the digital and games sector, Sheffield really is at the forefront of the creative sector.
