About Us

Manor Training & Resource Centre (MaTReC) is a voluntary-sector training organisation. Its legal status is that of a charitable company limited by guarantee.

Founded in 1987 its primary aim is to empower the local community by delivering low cost training to equip people with the skills to re-enter and/or advance within the labour market.

Manor Training & Resource Centre Ltd (MaTReC), evolved from Manor Employment Project (MEP), which began life in 1979. The MEP project was set up to provide premises for small local businesses.

By the mid 80s the issue of training had become increasingly important, so MaTReC was established in April 1987, with the express aim of providing local people with the opportunities to obtain skills and qualifications. We now offer training to all the people of Sheffield and surrounding areas.

MaTReC’s main site was converted from old shops using local labour. It was opened in 1989 by Richard Caborn MP.

The charity is constantly updating its programme of courses so whether it’s sign language or English language, job seeking or surfing the net, MaTReC will have a course for you, offered at low cost or, in some instances, free of charge and with childcare support.
