Consultancy and Placements

The Regional Heritage Centre offers a range of consultancy services to voluntary groups and the commercial sector.

This can include collaboration on funding applications, training volunteers on archival, oral history and other research skills, and even producing a bespoke history of your organisation to commemorate a special anniversary. Contact us to arrange a free consultation.

The Regional Heritage Centre works with a range of museums, archives and other heritage organisations across North West England to offer students in the History Department the opportunity to take part in work placements as part of the second year of their degree. 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, with educational outreach and more. You can read about some of the experiences of students who took part in the pilot project in 2014-15 on our Heritage Placements blog.

We also work with colleagues in the Department of History to support the placements programme for the MA in History.
