The Academy in Leeds

Connecting the construction industry of today, for tomorrow

The Academy brings together industry professionals to learn and share knowledge. By listening carefully to the industry, SFS continues to break new ground and push boundaries in developing new technologies and products.

One of the greatest challenges faced by the industry is recruiting and training the next generation of architects, engineers and installers. SFS has invested heavily into developing an Academy space in Leeds to create a hub for knowledge exchange and learning within the industry.

Alongside this, we are proud to support the community, through close links with Leeds Beckett University, with a comprehensive training programme and bespoke seminars at all levels of experience.

It is our mission to drive our long-standing philosophy of learning, growing and evolving, and our custom-built academy, showroom and hands-on training facility enables us to deliver this objective.
