CCSR Short Courses Training
CCSR is a top-rated research centre which hosts an extensive programme of short course training in research methods, aimed at academics and applied researchers in the public and private sectors.
Courses run from introductory to advanced and cover all aspects of the research process, including research design, data collection and data analysis. We have continually revised and added to our programme in response to evolving demand and with support from the Economic and Social Research Council. New courses include data mining, multi-level modelling and the analysis of longitudinal datasets. All courses are developed and delivered by staff who are experts in their fields.
Most courses are one day in duration, although a number run over two or three days. Courses are designed to be free-standing, though many build together to provide learning pathways from basic to more advanced level. The format of our courses typically includes a combination of lectures and/or demonstrations, supported by a substantial practical component, to ensure participants gain hands-on experience in the application of the methods being taught. Course leaders and teaching assistants are on hand to ensure a friendly and supportive learning environment. The Training Suite is one of ten ESRC Regional Training Centres.
