Our research and evaluation techniques are tailored to each educational setting. They are participatory, inclusive and enable us to obtain rich insight.
For an array of national and local clients we have undertaken work on social mobility, essential skills, apprenticeships, work-based learning, qualification reform, careers guidance and best-practice support for disadvantaged learners. A detailed and up to date understanding of education and skills policy informs our work and allows us to formulate recommendations and proposals that are couched in the latest context.
