About this resource

Share this resource

This pack contains resources to support student projects in the local community. The resource was designed to be used with first year undergraduate students taking part in group based community project work in the Combined Studies Centre at the University of Manchester.

The pack was given to students at a face-to-face meeting organised with the course-unit tutor at the beginning of their group project.  This was the only face-to-face meeting set up by the course-unit tutor for the community projects.  The resource pack was designed to support the self-directed nature of this task, and to summarise the main points discussed at this group meeting.

The pack can be adapted to be made appropriate for your own students’ projects.

It includes:

  • guidance for students about project queries
  • list of resources available to students to support their project work
  • fundraising ideas
  • oral history references
  • template of the community project contract, completed by both the student group and community organisation
