  1. The University of Salford has scooped three awards at a prestigious educational event with the School of Health & Society’s partnership with the Northern Care Alliance winning the Business/Industry Collaboration Award. The Educate North Awards celebrate, recognise and share best practice in the education sector in the North of England, with the awards announced in a specially streamed event on Thursday 22 April 2021, hosted by Jim Hancock. The event attracts over 300 education professionals from Further and Higher Education institutions from across the North, together with a range of suppliers to the sector including financial institutions, professional services providers, IT and infrastructure providers and construction and property firms. The University of Salford and Northern Care Alliance Partnership fought off strong competition from the University of Chester’s Business School and Manchester Metropolitan University’s Faculty of Education to win the award. Professor Margaret Rowe, Dean of the School of Health and Society, said: Dr Karen Stansfield, Associate Dean Enterprise and Engagement at the University of Salford, said: The awards, which are a celebration of excellence and best practice in the education sector in the North, were judged by a panel of leading industry professionals and experts with the University of Salford also winning; External Relations Team of The Year and The Student Experience Award.
  2. The University of Salford is celebrating after being named officially as a Bronze accredited Hedgehog Friendly Campus. Staff and student volunteers have spent the last eight months working to make the University hedgehog friendly, after joining the Hedgehog Friendly Campus (HFC) scheme in June 2020. Funded by The British Hedgehog Preservation Society (TBHPS), the national campaign is designed to safeguard the hedgehog population and turn universities into a safe space where they can thrive. Although the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has prevented volunteers from being physically together during this time, the team has triumphed in turning the campus into a sanctuary for prickly visitors by completing a list of Bronze objectives from home. These objectives included running awareness campaigns on social media, fundraising for TBHPS, and improving campus habitat by building the University’s first hedgehog house, thanks to a little help from fellow colleagues working on campus. Salford is one of 40 universities to be awarded Bronze accreditation for 2020/21. Bec Bennett, Head of Environmental Sustainability at the University, said: “I am absolutely delighted that we have received Bronze accreditation and Salford is officially a hedgehog friendly campus! A huge thank you to all of our staff and student volunteers for their hard work over the past eight months to help make this happen. “We started working towards becoming a hedgehog friendly campus in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, and it has been quite challenging completing our objectives without physically being on campus. The fact that we’ve been awarded Bronze accreditation in such a short space of time, and under the current circumstances, is testament to our dedicated volunteers and Estates and Facilities colleagues, who have worked alongside the team to help us get to where we are today. “It’s been such a lovely, positive project to work on during this time and I am very much looking forward to working towards Silver then Gold accreditation!” Chloe Nevitt, the University's Hedgehog Friendly Champion, added: "Hedgehog Friendly Campus is a fantastic initiative and a lovely project to be involved with. I’m proud that we have been able to contribute towards helping our local wildlife and I am hoping that we can welcome more staff and students to the team as we work towards our Silver accreditation." If you’re interested in helping the University of Salford work towards Silver HFC accreditation, please get in touch.
  3. Salford has launched a new initiative to train the workers of the future. The tech talent pipeline partnership has been created by the city’s public and private sectors to link education, training and local employers to tackle skills shortages and help residents make the most of digital opportunities. Salford City Council has been working on this initiative with anchor institutions in the city including the University of Salford, Future Skills, Salford City College, Salford Royal Foundation Trust, The Landing and MediaCityUK. Salford is already part of the biggest cluster of digital businesses outside London and recent government figures* suggest growth in the digital sector is six times that of other areas of the economy. City Mayor Paul Dennett said: The initiative has already helped connect people to digital opportunities with the launch of two academies to develop the next generation of cyber and data analysts. The cyber academy is led by Raytheon Professional Services and train residents for cyber-security engineer roles whilst the University of Salford leads on a digital data specialists academy, both increasingly important areas for the future. Salford Chief Digital Officer Jon Corner said: The tech talent pipeline partnership links together schools, colleges, the university, other training providers, partner organisations and local employers including AJ Bell, BUPA, Morson Group, Morson Projects, Raytheon Professional Services, Raytheon UK, TalkTalk and Sodexo. Employers are already committed to help young people by providing virtual resources for #FindMyFuture, an online youth hub with support around employment, training, wellbeing, finance and travel. A group of 16-24 year olds have been helped by industry professionals to create digital CVs to help them stand out from the crowd through DEVA/hack (Digital Entrepreneurs and Video Artists Hackathon) The cyber and digital data specialists academies came out of #Digital Salford and Salford City Council working with employer partners to successfully secure funding from the Fast Track Digital Workforce Fund. Set up to address digital skills shortages and train underrepresented groups, this is a joint venture between Greater Manchester Combined Authority, Lancashire Digital Skills Partnership and the government. Digital opportunities in Salford and across Greater Manchester will continue to grow as all sectors become increasingly digitised.

  4. E-scooters have today (Monday September 28) been given the go ahead in Salford – and will be on the streets next month. City Mayor Paul Dennett gave approval to a trial scheme, for up to 12 months, in partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) and the University of Salford. Lime, which already provides e-scooters in 125 cities around the world, has been chosen to supply and operate the scooters. The trials will begin at the University of Salford Peel Park and Frederick Road campus, before being expanded to connect the campus to MediaCityUK. Phase three will see the trial zone expanded to cover Ordsall and city centre Salford. The trial will be open to everyone over 18 with either a provisional or full driving licence to use within the designated trial areas. Councillor Mike McCusker, Executive Support Member for Planning, Housing and Sustainable Development, said: Nicola Kane, Head of Strategic Planning, Research and Innovation at TfGM, said: Mike Brown, Director of Strategic Partnerships at the University of Salford, said: E-scooter hire schemes are widespread in other European cities such as Paris, Berlin and Rome. The UK trials have been fast-tracked by the government as part of the national response to the coronavirus pandemic. Lime was appointed after thorough selection process, being chosen over 15 other providers which expressed an interest. Lime was selected due to its global experience, commitments to investing in Salford, strong record of safety and its reliable and sturdy scooter design. Lime is the world’s leading micro mobility company, operating in over 125 global cities, including the UK’s first multi-modal scheme in Milton Keynes, which has seen thousands of people benefit from this new, environmentally friendly mode of transport, with over 18,000 rides being taken in the first month of the trial. Lime will be fully responsible for all implementation and operating costs. Florence Milner, Lime General Manager for the UK and Ireland said: E-scooters can be accessed through the Lime app on a smartphone. Riders will approach a scooter and scan the QR code on the handlebars to begin a ride. Each scooter ride will cost £1 to unlock and 15p per minute to ride. When a ride is complete, users must park the scooter in designated parking locations and take a photo to confirm the end of the ride. This ensures the scooter is responsibly parked and out of the path of pedestrians. When it comes to COVID-19, Lime is taking a range of precautions to address potential safety concerns. While COVID-19 is considered to transmit through close contact from person-to-person, and surface transmission is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, Lime has enhanced the cleaning of scooters and increased its frequency. Lime cleans all parts of the scooter that are touched by people and only uses products on the Centre for Biocide Chemistries list that have been approved by public health officials for use against the coronavirus. Lime distributes hand sanitiser, masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to its employees in all of its warehouses. Mechanics and operators in the field are required to wear gloves and wash their hands regularly. Lime asks riders to stay safe and take the necessary steps to help protect themselves and their communities as advised by public health officials. The company focuses communication with riders on the below health and safety tips when riding with Lime, delivering education through in-app messaging, emails, social media, local media and its blog. Lime asks to: · Listen to advice from your local public health officials on COVID-19 prevention · Inspect the e-scooter or e-bike to ensure the wheels, brakes, throttle, lights, and frame are all in good working condition · Mask up in public settings and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before and after riding with Lime · Educate yourself on safe, vigilant, and socially-distanced riding. Don’t forget your helmet! Visit https://safety.li.me/. About Lime Lime's mission is to foster people-first cities by empowering residents with more affordable, reliable, and sustainable transportation options. As the global leader in micromobility, Lime partners with cities to deploy electric bikes and scooters enabled with GPS and self-activating locks. Lime has powered more than 150 million rides in more than 120 cities across five continents, spurring a new generation of clean alternatives to car ownership. Learn more at li.me.
  5. Salford City Council, the University of Salford, Salford City College and Pure Innovations are to launch a new, specially designed supported internship for young people aged 16-24. Starting in September it will provide them with a range of work placements to help develop their skills, confidence and experience within a workplace setting. A team based at Salford City Council will help identify, develop and host work placements and support learners and staff involved in them. Councillor Lisa Stone, lead member for children’s and young people’s services, said it was a huge step forward in helping young people fulfil their ambitions. Professor Sam Grogan, Pro Vice-Chancellor Student Experience at the University of Salford said: The new programme will run for a full academic year, with interns spending four days a week on placements which will rotate every two to three months. They will spend an hour and a half in the classroom learning new skills at the start or end of each day and three to four hours per day with their employer. It’s based on the successful supported internship that has been operating at Salford Royal Foundation Trust for the past six years. Fifty young people have taken up internships there and half have gone into paid employment as a direct result of the programme.
