Research & Evaluation

Research informed, Evidenced based PLD services.


Our commitment to the highest quality research ensures that our teaching and our professional learning and development services are informed by the most current research and evidence from practice.

Faculty researchers explore educational and social science research from a wide range of perspectives, including particular focuses on educational effectiveness, language, culture and identity, development and learning, and education, welfare and wider social policy.

A particular feature of the faculty is its programme of education research that explores how educational interventions can improve teaching and learning, particularly for disadvantaged student groups.

These interventions address aspects of the system (such as curriculum design or national assessment), school organisation and other aspects of teaching and learning.
