Welcome to our landing page for MaCTRI 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 social justice and the critical thinking it reveals.

You can read about how we are the legacy of a research partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University, here.
