What is the EMC?

The Education Media Centre is an independent charity set up to improve the public and media understanding of education research and evidence.

We do this by making it easy for the media to access useful academic and research expertise on the education stories they are covering in newspapers, on radio, TV and the internet.

Our ultimate goal is to raise awareness and knowledge of research amongst the public and academics as they turn to the media for up to date information about the education issues which interest them.

We have no political, ideological or research agenda and no affiliation to any other organisation.

To target topics which interest the public, the EMC responds to education stories pursued by the media.

We also aim to enrich the agenda by showcasing fresh research findings and new expert thinking on popular and important education topics.

What`s the evidence behind that?

Do you ever read, watch or listen to education stories in the news and ask yourself, “What`s the evidence behind that? “

Whether you are a student, pupil, teacher, policy maker, parent, apprentice, employer, education professional, taxpayer or prime minister, the Education Media Centre aims to help enrich your knowledge of topical education issues.

Impartial and independent, the Education Media Centre is a charity set up to help the public understand more about the education issues which appear in the news.

It does this by helping the news media find out about and report on research and evidence produced by education experts in universities and other institutions in the UK and around the world. And we make sure that information is on topics which interest the public and is presented in a clear and media friendly way.

Our goal is for the public to be able to read, hear, see and understand more from education research experts via the media.

The EMC has no affiliation or leaning towards any other organisation and has no political, ideological or research agenda.
