Staff and students in SEED have a longstanding reputation for developing collaborative partnerships with schools and colleges within Manchester, across the North West, and internationally.
Continued engagement with the education community is a vital part of ensuring the University of Manchester’s commitment to high quality teaching, research and social responsibility.
SEED is heavily invested in school engagement. For instance, Educational Psychologist and teacher trainees are in over 200 schools across greater Manchester and hundreds of schools across England engage with the University through collaborative research and learning opportunities. Additionally, thousands of students visit the campus each year to benefit from tours, lectures, activities and events.
On campus activity
Every academic year, we offer a specific programme of activities on campus to stretch and challenge learners from all educational backgrounds.
An opportunity for Year 12 students to get a taste of what University is like, including attending a lecture and workshops, and the chance to meet current staff and students.
Local teachers can encourage their post-16 students to join our Manchester Access Programme that helps students from any background show their potential.
Leadership of learning
Aspiring teachers work collaboratively with our PGCE staff and local schools to plan and deliver lessons.
