Since we began studying policy issues in 1991 we have worked with some of the UK’s most prestigious organisations on a wide range of investigative and policy-making projects.
Our experience covers almost every change and iteration of UK education and training policy over the last twenty years but our most important contribution to any piece of work is our capacity for “out-of-the-box” thinking; our ability to see the issues from different perspectives and to ask the difficult questions.
Apart from general strategic studies we have researched, considered, and reported on numerous feasibility and evaluation projects each of which brought its own challenges. Ranging from the potential to develop new training centres to three-year evaluations of major regional initiatives, our work not only brings the standard high quality of planning and organisation but also careful, insightful thought into what may have happened and what might be done to improve and enhance things in the future.
Just a quick update to say thanks to Clare and Michael who are doing great work for us on the contracts.
All their hard work was noted by one of our advisory group members today in reducing the multifarious NOS statements into draft units about working the voluntary sector.
Specifically from my side, they have both provided exemplary support during what has been an intense and difficult period for [us] with the pressure of getting all this work through the door.
