Covering all areas of labour market economics, from productivity and wages to the link between education, skills and employment, our team provides expert analysis for both the public and the private sector.
We undertake a wide range of analyses covering higher education fees and funding arrangements, economic and social impact analyses, differences in higher education funding systems across the United Kingdom and internationally, as well as the earnings and employment outcomes achieved by UK graduates.
Our team are specialists in the Further Education research sector, applying cutting-edge econometric techniques to approach key policy questions. We are leaders in estimating the returns to vocational qualifications and fuzzy matching techniques for combining administrative datasets.
We analyse all aspects of education economics at secondary level, ranging from the determinants of undertaking academic or vocational qualifications and the impact of qualification attainment on progression and labour market outcomes to school funding issues and the evaluation of national programmes. We have delivered in depth analyses to schools, mission groups and central government departments.
We help companies understand how customers make decisions and how to improve customer outcomes using the latest insights from behavioural economics.
