The Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) is the largest educational research unit in any UK university, and we are growing. Established in 1983, CEM works with schools, colleges, education authorities and government agencies in the UK and Internationally. We aim to improve the quality of education through the provision of high quality information and our work is backed by cutting-edge research. CEM assesses over 1 million pupils every year and is one of the few establishments in the world to successfully use computer-adaptive assessments in schools. Using specialist software we can provide information to schools about the individual attainment, attitudes and progress of their pupils.

Current vacancies at CEM are listed below, however even when there are no vacancies we are keen to hear from dynamic, numerate graduates especially those with programming and database design skills, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
