Our approach to each project is tailored to the questions you are trying to answer or problems you are trying to solve. Duration of the research, cost, sensitivities and accessibility considerations also need to be taken into account. Our services include:

• Evaluation and impact assessment
• Learner and service user feedback
• Staff feedback and customer insight
• Identifying what works and best practice
• Policy and strategic analysis
• Feasibility and exploration of new ideas
• Cost-effectiveness and value for money

We design approaches using quantitative and qualitative methods. Many of our projects use multiple methods to provide rigour and quality in data achieved.
