Training & Research at MaCTRI

Welcome to MaCTRI

MEaP Academy Community Training & Research Institute

Welcome to MaCTRI landing page where members, partners, scholars and students can access their training & research spaces. MaCTRI is our training and research arm within the Community Education Centre, where we are passionate about delivering training that enhances our teaching.

We also deliver wider training as part of our Apprenticeships programmes with our network of employment providers. Underpinning our training, we are equally passionate about community research into traditional and complementary medicine (T&CM), social justice and the critical thinking it reveals.

We are the legacy of a research partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University.
