Excellence in Research and Evaluation
Specialising in the education and skills sector.
We have more than 20 years experience of carrying out research and evaluation projects using a full range of quantitative and qualitative research techniques. Many of our research reports have been published and some recent examples are listed opposite.
RCU’s particular strength is in data analysis with extensive knowledge of learner datasets such as the the Individualised Learner Record (ILR). Our team combines this expertise with a full range of research techniques including statistical analysis, data modelling, web, paper-based and telephone surveys, focus groups and desk research. We have extensive expertise in questionnaire design, sampling strategies, weighting techniques and multi-level modelling. This is backed up by an in-depth understanding of the education and skills sector.
