ESRC praise the Department`s quantitative methods training
The Subject Area Panel Chair commented that `This is a very strong application that meets all of the requirements set by the ESRC. We are particularly impressed by the level of basic training provided in quantitative methods. This element has been flagged to the ESRC Training Board`s recognition panel. The outlet draws upon a very strong research culture and articulates its training provision to particular areas of research strength. Procedures are robust and arrangements for supervision are sound. Improvements are in place to increase submission rates. We have no concerns to communicate to the outlet about the standards or delivery of the training provision.`
