The Centre for Curriculum, Pedagogy and Policy is a leading research centre studying the overlapping themes of curriculum and pedagogy, and the development and enactment of education policy.

Our Research

Improving the educational experiences of all young people is crucial to addressing a range of societal challenges e.g. reducing social inequalities, improving well-being of young people, enhancing career opportunities. Our research informs the development and enactment of curriculum, pedagogy and policy that improves educational experiences for all. Research within the Centre explores the development and enactment of educational policy, the relationship between policy, research and practice, and the evidence-informed design and evaluation of learning and teaching, with a particular focus on science and mathematics education.
