Why Q-Step?

Quantitative Methods - the ways of collecting, making sense of and answering questions of relevance to social and public debate using numeric data - have a long and important history in the social sciences. Unfortunately, the UK has a shortage of social science graduates with the quantitative skills needed to evaluate evidence, analyse data, and design and commission research. Yet these skills are in demand from employers across all sectors - academia, government, business and charities.

Q-Step is a national initiative designed to better teach social science undergraduates the skills they need for work, for research and to improve their disciplinary learning.
