  • The Salford Student Life Award is a new opportunity for students at the University of Salford to fulfill their career potential.
  • In today’s competitive job market, employers are looking for those graduates who have acquired knowledge and skills through their degree programme, and who have gained a range of employability skills through work experience, voluntary and other activities which encourage personal development.
  • By recognising their involvement in extra-curricula activities the Award will promote the importance of developing the necessary skills to succeed in the world of work on graduation.
  • The Award is a framework for students’ to supply evidence of how they have developed skills and widened their experience over the course of the programme. The compulsory elements ensure that students have identify areas for improvement, develop a good CV and a covering letter and are confident at presentations. The Supporting Activities elements enable that skills development to take place through their attendance at employability workshops and relevant training sessions. The Active Engagement element ensures that they have their involvement in extra-curricula activity recognised and rewarded. This element also forms the content for the Presentation Task which will be a reflection on the skills and experience gained from these activities
  • The University of Salford is keen to gain local business support for this new venture. We would like local businesses to promote the importance of developing employability skills, to be the voice of reality in regard to what employers want from graduates and to work alongside Award staff to ensure quality of delivery and appropriateness of provision for all students taking part.
  • We feel that the relationship has to be reciprocal and therefore we will be happy to promote the local businesses involved by placing logos on our publicity and providing a profile within the University community. It is envisaged that the links developed through the first Award year will be strengthened and that local business involvement will grow as time goes on.
  • Developing links between the University and local business is tantamount to the success of the Student Life Award. It should provide a positive experience for all those involved and will help us all to develop both as people and as professionals.
  • Central Salford is a not-for-profit private limited company, established in 2006 by Salford City Council, the NWDA and English Partnerships (now the HCA) to bring about the transformation of Central Salford over the next 15-20 years
  • Central Salford acts as a facilitator, working closely with the public and private sector to ensure the investment in Central Salford delivers the maximum benefits for the people who are living and working here. For every £1 or public sector money invested Central Salford attracts £10 of private sector investment into the area We have a target of achieving £4 billion of private sector investment by 2020. Over half of this amount is already committed and with the help and support of all our partners, especially our local communities and their representatives, we are confident that Central Salford will realise the scale of the ambition to which we have all signed up.
  • The Central Salford area encompasses 2000ha and 72,000 people ands covers Ordsall, Broughton, Irwell Riverside, Seedley, Langworthy, Kersal, Claremont and Weaste We can’t do everything, everywhere so to guide our efforts we have a Vision and Regeneration Framework which w as the direct result of extensive consultation with communities throughout Central Salford. The Vision focuses on 4 priority areas: Chapel Street and The Crescent Pendleton The Quays and Waterfront The River Irwell Corridor It is about much more than just bricks and mortar – it is about the social, economic, physical and environmental regeneration of the City. To make Central Salford Beautiful, Vibrant, Prosperous
  • SCC committed to partnership working on a neighbourhood level Last 10 years have seen huge improvements in neighbourhood management throughout the city Recognition that further improvement to services is necessary to tackle particular issues We all know that issues such as high levels of car crime, overgrown and poorly maintained green spaces, fly tipping etc has an obvious negative effect on people’s lives locally Poor state of an area also ,means it becomes a breeding ground for high levels of ASB and more serious incidences of criminal behaviour At same time it has an adverse affect on investor confidence despite the area’s proximity to salford quays and media city
  • So working with our partners the URC to introduce a series of strategic environmental improvements. These are happening on 3 levels: Lowest level – neighbourhood improvement programme. Tactical small scale interventions that provide environmental improvements to an area. These also produce social benefits as well. Next level – green streets programme Final level – gateway projects
  • What does this mean in practice Central Salford is probably the only URC with a Director of Community Regeneration dedicated to ensuring that growing prosperity makes a real difference for local people. The ‘Spotlight’ programme is designed to deliver just that. Spotlight addresses the way in which public services deal with unemployment and day to day issues like crime and the environment, whilst fundamentally changing the system for the better in the long term. Spotlight was successfully developed and trialled in 2007/8 and it has already delivered some significant reforms in the way services are delivered locally, and in the role of local people in holding services to account. The Safe, Clean and Green agenda is just one of the positive outcomes of this process Established a co-located team Co-located team – getting partners resources to where they are needed most Enables a more objective basis of local prioritisation of necessary works Established the clean and green team
