We are a national centre of education, recognised for our excellence and innovation in teaching and learning. We're passionate about investing our expertise and resources in a wide range of education studies.
Our work is embedded in practice and delivered by working in partnership to respond to the needs of educational employers. Everything we do is informed by broad, cutting-edge research by leading academics and expert practitioners, across many related disciplines.
From early years through to higher education - at every level from foundation degree to post-doctoral – we're a hub for excellence, innovation and knowledge advancement in childhood and young people’s development and learning.
We're renowned for our collaborative and inclusive approach. Our academics, researchers and partners in schools - alongside the wider education sector - work together to produce skilled, committed and professional graduates, many of whom return to us throughout their careers to further their professional development.
Our work with decision makers and links with colleagues in all areas of education mean that we lead and influence policy as well as practising at local and national levels.
