Find centres and networks

The Graduate School of Education is home to five research centres - each engaged in a programme of systematic research, capacity building and impact generation, around their particular substantive and methodological concerns.

The school is also home to a number of networks that form around a particular issue area. Their aim is to stimulate lively debate around these issues, and contribute to new understandings.

In combination, centres and networks combine to create a lively research atmosphere in the school. They also contribute to developing the kind of expertise that enables us to shape debates, policy and practice in ways that benefit teachers, learners, parents and policy makers both within the UK and globally.
