World leading research and evaluation

CEM’s work is rooted in the tradition of sound evidence-based research.

Academics and research teams from CEM work regularly with education organisations across the world on a variety of projects, from one-off specialist reports, to substantial research and evaluation commissions that cover several years and involve vast data collation and processing resources.

One of the largest educational research units in a UK university, CEM publishes a range of papers and reports that are used to advocate improvements to teaching practices.
CEM also maintains one of the largest educational data banks in the country, a substantial and invaluable volume of statistical data which has been collected for over two decades.
