Research

3Si want to improve the quality and relevance of vocational education and training both locally and across Europe. We perform this by leading and contributing to research projects that create new courses and enhance the methods of current vocational training.

Our research is conducted with selected partners who complement one another. Training centres, research institutes, employers and awarding bodies for vocational courses are regularly involved to ensure projects are comprehensive, evidence-based and responsive to current and future needs.

If you would like to become a research partner or find out more about our projects, contact us now.
