International Public Policy Institute Centre for Education & Social Policy

Where the talents of all flourish and there is a place for everyone

The Centre for Education & Social Policy brings together a range of social, education and related expertise from across Strathclyde including the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences which is home to the Schools of Social Work & Social Policy, Education, Psychological Sciences and Health, Government & Public Policy and Law, and the work of Strathclyde Business School.

All these schools deliver high quality applied professional education for teachers, social workers, educational psychologists, lawyers and policy makers, as well as evidence-based research and practice-based policy.

In addition, all deliver extensive postgraduate and professional development programmes.

The University has one of the largest academic groupings of research, teaching and continuing professional development activity related to the areas of education and social policy.

The Centre for Education and Social Policy brings together this cross-disciplinary expertise, builds on it and helps to deploy it more widely in Scotland, the UK and internationally to develop evidence-based policy that delivers educational and social outcomes that make a difference to people’s lives.
