Research faculty


Our Research in Practice faculty brings together the latest academic theory with front line  practice to embed a learning culture throughout social work in Oxfordshire. 

We work in collaboration with our university partners, Ruskin College Oxford and Oxford Brookes University, to commission and promote research to improve education and 
development for both social work practitioners and students. 

The faculty builds links with research based agencies to provide inspiring and cutting edge learning and development opportunities, and gives our staff access to the latest academic 
findings and the implications for practice. The faculty also carries our benchmarking, surveys and its own research.
