As part of the process the Department submitted three impact case studies, one which was a study built around the work of NCELP, OASIS, and IRIS and the new Modern Foreign Language GCSE and was rated the highest 4* ‘world-leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour.’
‘In the Department of Education, we are committed to conducting research which pushes back the frontiers of knowledge in understanding and improving learning and the policies and systems which affect it. We are delighted that our collective efforts have been acknowledged in the outcomes of the REF exercise.’Head of Department, Paul Wakeling
The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021 provide a national picture of world-leading research produced across the breadth of university activity. A vital element of REF is illustrating the benefits research delivers beyond academia, including how it brings tangible changes to aspects of society and life, and the public value it delivers. 220 external users of research, working jointly with academic members, assessed the impact of each of the submissions and independently and obectively recognised NCELP’s work at the highest rating of 4*.
