Education and Training
- Our vision is to transform S.AD.A.C.C.A as an outstanding provider of targeted learning for the whole African and Caribbean community of Sheffield and surrounding areas.
There are very limited local initiatives which focus on the educational disadvantage of African and Caribbean students in Sheffield. Key areas of concern for African and Caribbean students such as under-achievement, bullying, unemployment, and racial harassment do not appear to be addressed by local organisations. Recent research indicates that a significant number of African and Caribbean parents see Sheffield schools as white institutions with a white dominated curriculum where black children do not necessarily come out with a sense of being black British having received no or very few black role models within the learning context.
The S.A.D.A.C.C.A Learning Centre will provide a creative and cultural hub for the community. It will house first class, specialist teaching and learning environments for learners with varied needs. Facilities such as a library, cafe, gallery, and meeting rooms will foster informal learning opportunities and generate income to ensure that learning is accessible to all.
