Event description

Description

USE-IT! is a project aimed at creating social and economic opportunities for residents from the Greater Icknield area including Smethwick, Cape Hill, Ladywood, Summerfield, Winson Green and Soho.

We’re looking for people just like YOU to become COMMUNITY RESEARCHERS. Use your life-skills and experience to explore what’s going on in your area. Collect information, map and analyse current activity. Co-produce knowledge to help shape the future of your neighbourhood and inform long-term policy. Develop new skills in social research.

Get paid for sharing your findings with us.

What we offer COMMUNITY RESEARCHERS:

  • Development of new skills in social research with support of a mentor from the University of Birmingham or one of our partners
  • Meeting new people and gaining transferable skills useful for employment
  • The opportunity to help shape the future of your city and neighbourhood and to develop a sustainable co-production of knowledge and policy development
  • Opportunity to get paid for reporting back your conversations on themes of interest
  • Free OCN accredited research training: this involves completing three modules of training (roughly 20 hours of commitment over a 6-8 week period)

PLEASE NOTE: This is a two-day course and you'll need to book both dates. Please contact us if you have any questions.
