The Edge Foundation leads the way in supporting and commissioning research to show the value of technical and professional education, showcase best practice and understand lessons learned. We often work with partner organisations when tendering for research to ensure that the findings are as relevant as possible to colleagues across the sector.
This page provides details of any research tenders where we are currently looking for organisations or individuals to come forward to undertake pieces of work. You can find information and findings from previous research projects on our Research reports page. If you have any questions about our research programme, you can contact our Director of Policy and Research, Olly Newton.
Evaluation of University Technical Colleges (UTCs)
We are working with the Royal Academy of Engineering to jointly commission a piece of research to evaluate the University Technical College (UTC) model.
The aim of this piece of research will be to understand effective practice and lessons learned, particularly in relation to curriculum design and employer engagement.
We anticipate this piece of work beginning in 2017 and running for two years.
