Recent successes in education research among members of the team include studies of Sure Start, for the Children’s Workforce Development Council, and on literacy and mentoring. Team members are involved at a national level in developing government policies for early years and youth work, and initial teacher training requirements. Education staff 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.
