We have a strong interest in research at all stages of the development of teachers in early years, primary and secondary education contexts. This includes initial teacher education and the career-long continuing professional development of teachers. 

We are also interested in the learning of other professions linked to the educational context. A distinctive feature of this research is the role which partners play in its design and delivery.  

Professional Learning & Teacher Education focuses on teacher development involvng both policy and practice, spanning early years, primary and secondary education contexts - from initial teacher education to career-long continuing professional development. (Colucci-Gray, Mtika, Shanks)
