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.

The Regional Heritage Centre works with a range of 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. A PowerPoint presentation (with voiceover) created by a student who was on placement with Wigan Archives and Local Studies Centre in 2017, as part of her assessment portfolio, is available here.

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