Our work in this area focuses on research into, and evaluations of, policies and interventions designed to improve outcomes (educational, social and socio-economic) for children, young people and their families; other adults and local communities.

Within that broad area, SQW have developed knowledge and expertise in specific topic areas, including: the evaluation of early years' interventions and family support programmes; educational topics as diverse as science education, literacy and numeracy and careers education and guidance; interventions for disadvantaged young people and marginalised communities in both developed and developing countries; and widening participation and adult and basic skills learning.CYP_Expertise.jpg
