NFER provides bespoke consultancy and training to government departments and national, regional and local organisations working in education. This is a key part of our commitment to supporting others to use evidence to improve education.
As the UK’s leading independent education research organisation, we offer support across all of our areas of methodological expertise. These are:
- qualitative research
- survey research
- analysis of large data sets
- randomised control trials
- reviews and evidence scoping
- assessment design and delivery
We carefully tailor our support to clients’ individual needs. First, we focus on getting to know you and your needs, then we design a package that will best support you to achieve your aims.
Our practicing education experts, researchers, economists, psychometricians, statisticians, information professionals and assessment specialists deliver all of our consultancy and training. This means that you can rest assured that what we offer is grounded in the latest theory and best practice as well as in successful real world application.
By developing your staff’s capacity to undertake, commission, interpret or use evidence and assessment data, we support innovation, system improvement, stronger leadership and more effective practice.
