I develop and deliver training on how to conduct research and evaluation.
Courses are designed for both those new to research and experienced researchers who want to develop their skills and better understand the main considerations, challenges and practical aspects
Each year I design and deliver at least 6 training courses for the Social Research Association, on conducting research and evaluation with children and young people.
Recently I developed and delivered bespoke courses for OSN, Action for Children, the Office of the Children’s Commissioner and Sustrans.
I often train and support non-researchers to work as peer researchers. For example I trained care leavers to conduct a national survey about support services; and trained young people on Princes Trust programmes, and families using SureStart, to evaluate the projects they were using.
