Firth Court

SheffieldBiology, Biochemistry, BiotechnologyBank, Insurance

Firth Court is the main administrative centre for the University of Sheffield in Sheffield, England, and also houses the Department for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology and Biomedical Science. It is linked, via the Addison Building to the Alfred Denny Building.

Firth Court stands at the heart of the University of Sheffield precinct on Western Bank. The building was opened by King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in 1905, the same year that the University of Sheffield was granted its royal charter and officially came into being.

Firth Hall is named after Sheffield steel manufacturer Mark Firth who played a key role in the University of Sheffield's early development. The building originally housed the University's Arts, Science and Medicine departments.

The main entrance is on floor C, from this point up there are four complete floors (up to F floor which houses the first of the MBB lecture theatres (F2) and research labs) and then G floor which is divided into several sections (housing the second lecture theatre (G2) and seminar rooms). This gives the five floors sometimes quoted, however the department's NMR facility extends downwards from floor C and is housed on B (which is ground level at the back of the building), A and a further floor below this which has no official designation. In places the building extends above G floor, these towers do not have official floor letters but extend to what would be I floor. Counted from the bottom of the NMR pit to the highest research laboratory (that of Dr Milton Wainwright) Firth court is 10 floors.

Northern College is an adult residential college based in Wentworth Castle in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Founded in 1978 it has a mission of transforming individuals and communities. It is unusual (but not unique) in English Further Education in that it promotes a pedagogy of social purpose education.

The college is one of the four long-term residential adult education colleges in the United Kingdom. It was established in 1978 and by 2006 was the largest of these colleges. It is set in the only Grade I listed landscape in South Yorkshire.

The college was one of the Beacon Colleges under the FEFC and has Beacon Status under the LSC, one of only two institutions to hold this status in South Yorkshire. It has helped develop adult education in the UK with outreach community learning, trade union education and education for community regeneration.

The college runs outreach programmes throughout West and South Yorkshire, and a Foundation Programme with short residential, literacy and numeracy courses at levels 1 and 2. A 'Workforce Development Programme' includes provision for trade unionists in conjunction with the TUC, AMICUS, the GFTU, UNISON and the GMB. The College Diploma Programmes provide access to higher education and employment opportunities for full-time and part-time adult students.

Northern College provides facilities for conferences, workshops and seminars, a facility for 80-100 participants in the refurbished St James Church, and additional residential and teaching facilities in the 18th-century Home Farm complex.
