Work-based learning (IWBL) grant to develop online resources for employers to support placement students.
Higher Education Teaching Development Grant (2012): this project enabled a partnership approach with students to explore volunteering as an avenue to empower biomedical students to develop employability skills. This resulted in setting up of a satellite society within Middlesex of a 'Marrow' group whereby students engage with peers and the public and community to raise awareness of, and recruit to, the bone marrow donor register. This has been hugely welcomed by students and influential in increasing the diversity of donors to the register which are sorely needed.
