Education policy is all about quantity and quality. Centerdata helps to better understand exactly what these core concerns mean.
Will there be sufficient teachers in the future to satisfy demand? And what will they cost? For parties such as the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, sector councils, education unions and school boards, these are essential questions.
We carry out a large number of projects in the field, ranging from holding interviews, literature study, designing and fielding surveys, data analyses, building complex econometric (prognosis) models, and disseminating data through an interactive website.
In many cases we consult with the commissioning party to select a research strategy that consists of several of the methods named above. In this way we can be sure to identify all the relevant aspects and to examine the issue at hand from multiple angles.
The research results are often presented in the form of a report with a final presentation, although sometimes it suffices to deliver a dataset or a spreadsheet. The final result can also take the form of a software product such as a website or program.
