This event is a taster for college students from across Greater Manchester (GM). The day will consist of short lectures from Salford staff looking at local issues that impact on young people in GM e.g. knife crime. The students will also have the opportunity to take part in exercises where they deal with real life scenarios in Salford’s outstanding simulation suite. Students will take part in briefing and debriefing sessions. The sessions include reflection on the use of personal communication skills and teamwork.
The day is aimed at 6th form students who are interested applying for a University course in policing, criminology or related area. The taster day will give students the experience of studying at Uni using modern cutting-edge facilities. Simulation as an approach allows students to develop and test skills in a safe learning environment. The taster day is designed to show that universities are committed to inclusivity and diversity.
