Engagement & Impact


CfLaT aims to act as an intellectual and organisational focus for postgraduates.

Research expertise

We have developed our scope from a core in Education to the rest of the School and Faculty. They recognise our expertise and capacity in research methods.

Several members of the Centre contribute to the HASS Research Training Programme and the NINEDTP Advanced research training options.

Encouraging students

We have targeted increased student membership to further develop our research culture. There is a resource bank, meeting space and work space for students.

Events and activities organised by the Centre (such as our Research Teas) are open to our students. This has provided the opportunity for them to expand their research horizons.

Learning programmes

Alongside increased student membership, CfLaT has an increasing role in the School's programmes. We have influential roles related to PGT and PGR provision and this is having an impact.

Our module, Investigating Learning, and affiliation to the MA in Education Research, are key.

CfLaT has been instrumental in supporting the introduction of an Master's Level PGCE. This leads into the Practitioner Enquiry Masters and Professional Doctorate of Education programmes.

Research informing courses

Our research projects have formed the course for the MEd Practitioner Enquiry and EdD. They feed into the Primary and Secondary PGCE courses.

Within Education and CfLaT there is a strong overlap of theory, policy and practice.
