The Research

The Research

Diverse Educators are working with a group of researchers  to amplify published research that is focused on diversity, equity and inclusion.

We are committed to collating and sharing research-informed best practice that informs our teaching and leadership in schools.

We will also be hosting a series of research symposiums to bring researchers together to connect people and ideas across our community.

The Centre for Education and Youth is a think and action-tank that provides timely and accessible research and tools for organisations that work to support young people. Our clients need clear information and evidence to ensure their organisations can have the greatest impact possible. Our help enables them to make informed decisions about policy and provision. We get under the skin of our clients’ issues, to help them support young people to make fulfilling transitions into adulthood.
We prioritise talking directly to young people and amplifying their voices. We get under the skin of our clients’ issues which means our insight can make a more meaningful difference to our clients and ultimately improve the lives of young people.
