CIE research themes

Our research is clustered around four research themes:

These themes encompass all levels of education, including formal and informal systems of learning and development, from pre-school to university to community learning across public, private and non-government organisations.

We are engaged in a wide range of research-related activities, from empirical research, evaluations, reviews and research capacity development and communication. As a research centre, we also have the expertise and experience in a wide range of methodological approaches to research and research-related studies.
