Following a successful pilot in January 2019, the Department of Psychology at Manchester Metropolitan University are introducing work-based learning for their students this year. This is a fantastic way for these students to engage with the community while developing their skills. The University are offering VCSE organisations the opportunity to engage with students and benefit from their skills through one or two day a week placements or live projects where a team of students work on a problem or task off-site and present it to a supervisor based at the organisation.
Students can carry out a wide range of activities including service user work, data analysis/reporting, activity analysis and service promotion and have support from their academic supervisors throughout. The opportunities will occur in January for Undergraduate Students and both February and May for Postgraduate Students. These placements are a great way for to begin collaborating with the University or to enhance your existing relationship with them.
If this opportunity is of interest to you please contact Adam Hugill, Work Experience & Placement Development Manager: email@example.com or 0161 247 2466.
