The School provides a significant focus both for the sharing of and generation of research. We aim to increase teachers’ access to high-quality research through hosting conferences and meetings and inviting academics to lead our ‘Rush Hour Research’ event series. UoB School subject leaders have access to academic journals and are well-read and up to date. Many of our teachers already hold master’s and doctoral qualifications when they join and many more then take up opportunities for further study.
We receive a high level of interest in conducting research at the School and are engaged in a significant number of projects, both local and national. Research at the School takes a variety of forms, for example participation in large randomly controlled trials, co-creation of research between academic staff, pupils and teachers, and projects led by academic teams at the School of Education. We welcome expressions of interest in research at or with the School and are happy to discuss these at an early stage.
