Our commitment to
Academic research at the highest level is essential in providing information which informs action, gather evidence for theories, and contribute to developing knowledge in a particular field of study informing strategic professional thinking.
Our commitment to research into our own work has helped us to understand the learning journey, provide evidence of impact or change which in turn informs the practice moving forward. Theory and practice in our view must always be the same therefore we are committed to building solid relationships with renowned academic centres where knowledge exchange can take place.
