Planned Impact

This project involves little original research so that impact in its usual sense is not relevant. However the purpose of the project is precisely to achieve as large an impact as possible on the standard and breadth of QM training in UK university social science, including the development of interest, awareness, knowledge and skills amongst school pupils who might go on to study social science at university, post-doc researchers and teachers, and HE social science staff without the relevant knowledge or skill.
