Teesside is an ideal location to study social sciences. The area has been described as a research laboratory, as it has experienced rapid and profound change. Academic staff draw on local case studies and their own research to enrich their teaching, and maintain excellent networks of contacts with key policymakers and practitioners.
Evidence-based practice is at the heart of the best education for workforce development. Academic research is an important element of teaching and learning at Teesside University. The Education and Workbased Learning Research Unit is an active member of the University’s Social Futures Institute and, as such, contributes significantly to the research carried out in the field of education and social policy within this institute.
Education staff are involved at a national level in working with governmental and other agencies on national agendas and initiatives in education and training, thus contributing to policy development. They have published a range of material including course textbooks, agenda-setting texts, reports and journal papers on young people, youth-related issues, professional development, teaching in the lifelong learning sector and early years.
