The Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) is the largest educational research unit in any UK university, and we are growing. Established in 1983, CEM works with schools, colleges, education authorities and government agencies in the UK and Internationally. We aim to improve the quality of education through the provision of high quality information and our work is backed by cutting-edge research.
