Working with UCL Institute of Education

The Centre for Post-14 Education and Work recently held its annual meeting at which its Director, Paul Grainger, presented an annual report.

Part of the report was dedicated to its work in partnership with BSix. The two institutions work closely on research. The Centre is this year conducting three pieces of research on student and staff perceptions of the College. In addition, Senior Tutors are conducting research for a free-standing dissertation for MA.
The College also gives placements to trainee teachers who are also mentored by BSix staff. In return, some managers are mentored by Institute staff.


Since 2007 BSix and the Institute have collaborated on a range of innovations including professional development and the joint employment of a researcher-in-residence.

"We are delighted to have such a close and productive relationship with UCL Institute of Education" , says the College's Principal Ken Warman. "We value so highly the top quality research and teaching and learning provided by the Institute."
