Commission us

The Education Policy Institute supports a variety of organisations by carrying out commissioned work that investigates key issues in education through rigorous and evidence based research. All our work is done with the aim of supporting high standards in education, especially for the disadvantaged. We can look at particular policy issues, assess differing policy options, and help to evaluate interventions.

Co-host events

We host a number of conferences, roundtables, and networking events. These are often done in partnership with organisations in order to bring together decision makers, experts and parliamentarians to discuss a topical or important issue. Please get in touch if you are interested in co-hosting an event, including during the party conference season. To discuss further please contact us on or 020 7340 1160
