The programme supports University of Bradford’s ethos of being a ‘civic university’ with ethics, sustainability and responsible management at the heart of its action.
It's an initiative that actively demonstrates the School of Management’s award-winning commitment to making an impact on the local community and economy in Bradford, while preparing its graduates to the world of work through dealing with real-world problems.
Get involved in teaching
Our students thrive when given the opportunity to access real life teaching throughout their course. As an organisation you'll have access to experience and knowledge which can only be gained through working in your industry.
One of the key ways that you can work with our students is by offering your experience and expertise to our students through various modes of teaching.
Do you want to deliver a one-off workshop where you discuss the industry you work in, accessing recruitment and making the most of each students employability skills?
Do you want to offer students mock interview and assessment centre modules where they can gain professional interview and recruitment experience via your mock experience?
Or do you want to be the next business to offer your input into our teaching curriculum so students get real life knowledge and experience from local, regional or national businesses?
