identify and tackle the important research questions of the future, funding this work ourselves or seeking specially targeted funds.
develop new products and services to make it easy for others to gather and use evidence to help them improve education, children’s services and classroom learning
work closely with clients and partners to ensure maximum impact of our wide range of projects.
Whether we are providing research evidence for policymakers or to improve practice in the classroom, we are passionate about making sure that learners are the ultimate beneficiaries of all we do.
