Since Autumn 2014, the History Department has offered its students the opportunity to take part in work placements with heritage organisations across North-West England. Some of our current second-years are contributing to projects in archives and museums ranging from Carlisle to Runcorn and Preston to Bury; they are finding out what it is really like to work in the heritage sector, and are getting hands-on experience with objects, with documents, with catalogues and more. Some of our students have even drafted scripts for historical re-enactors to use in a new museum that opened in 2015. More on the work placements scheme will appear on our website soon.
