The SIoE Research and Knowledge Exchange Centre

SIoE Research and Knowledge Exchange Centre is the home for all funded RKE in the Institute. Previously known as the Centre for Development and Research in Education, it has been developing and delivering educational innovations and evaluations locally, nationally and internationally for over 25 years. Experts from across the Sheffield Institute of Education, come together in the centre across multiple areas of education in one of the country's most successful providers of initial teacher education in one of the country's largest universities.

Our team is academically-focused with a strong evidential base, client-orientated with a deep understanding of reality outside academia, cooperative and collaborative so that we can respond flexibly and creatively to client needs, and efficient and cost-effective with a commitment to delivery of the highest quality outputs.
