The Education Media Centre helps journalists reach relevant evidence and research, and it connects them with academic experts who are clear, knowledgeable and media-friendly.
The Education Media Centre can help education research experts who want their knowledge to make a difference in our nurseries, schools, colleges, universities and workplaces – wherever learning takes place.
