Following last week’s Graduate School workshop on ‘delivering research impact’, Dr Scott Turner drew my attention to the work of the National Co-Ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE).
Did you know there is a body, the National Co-Ordinating Centre for Public Engagement, which has been set up to support Universities across the UK to increase the quality and quantity of their public engagement activities. The University has signed their Manifesto.
Part of the NCCPEs remit is proving a wide range of training or CPD activities on public engagement.
They also run a Public Engagement Ambassador (PEA) scheme to support those who are engaged in public engagement activities and who want to develop skills and experience in this area. The University has currently four PEAs.
