The overall aim of the project is to provide an analytical review of the research literature on graduate employability and skills, with due attention to the diversity of the approaches that have been adopted.
The broad aim of this research is to explore the long-term impact of the Assisted Places Scheme on beneficiaries’ occupational and social prospects and on their aspirations for their children’s education.
The aim of the project is to provide an analysis of the current state of education in Wales, based upon a critical review of the available evidence. This analysis will provide the basis for the development of a future programme of educational research.
This is an evaluation of Pori Drwy Stori, a bilingual reading intervention designed to raise educational outcomes for young children by increasing the quality and quantity of adult-child interactions around reading in the home learning environment (HLE).
Established in September 2009, this programme provided training and networking opportunities between social science researchers and other relevant stakeholders.
This project, Welsh Graduate Migration, seeks to deepen understanding by investigating the nature and scale of graduate flows to and from Wales. The project was undertaken jointly between colleagues in WISERD and the ESRC Centre on Skills, Knowledge and Organisational Performance (SKOPE) based at Cardiff and Oxford Universities.
This study, funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation (£295,915) examined the extent to which an ICT intervention to enhance sustained shared thinking impacted on young children’s cognitive and linguistic outcomes. The project aimed to maximise the benefits of children’s early use of ICT whilst minimising the potential problems that may result from their use.
This project focused on increasing the engagement between local authorities and the higher education research community in Wales by reviewing current local authority education research capacity and activity in Wales and identifying factors that had an impact on activities, examining existing datasets, and identifying good practice in relation to collaborative research activities.
