What we do

The Centre for Education Economics (CfEE) conducts and promotes impartial economic research looking at the impacts of global efforts to improve education and skills provision in, and beyond, school.

A voice for education economists

CfEE produces reports and monthly and annual research digests to disseminate this literature, in the latter highlighting papers of particular importance to policymakers and practitioners. A research blog, ambitious events programme, and extensive media work support the research that we do, ensuring that we are called upon frequently to give evidence and speak in a variety of different policy forums.

We encourage education economists to share in this work by contributing to our research blog, lending us their advice and counsel, and through invitations to speak and contribute as panellists at our events.

Partnership for policy impact

CfEE is an important impact partner to high profile sponsors wishing to invest in rigorously evidenced research. Sponsors invest in our research to gain insight and ideas as to what they should be looking at in their own research, and steps they should advocate be taken to improve and to optimise pupil and wider stakeholder outcomes. In so doing, they also support our efforts to improve economic research literacy.

Consistent with these goals, alongside of more generic impact consultancy, we offer an impact package to research professionals and organisations in the field. The package consists of re-versioning research for wider readership, media promotion, and a targeted event, with optional add-ons for increasing traction.

See here for further details of our consultancy services and how they integrate with our wider work.

Platform development

This year we're developing a new conference on education economics and, we hope, re-instituting our annual lecture. Make sure you are subscribed to our general list, or follow us on twitter, for updates.
