The Learning Education & Development (LED) research centre at the University of Cumbria focuses on collaborative research and development projects. Our dual purposes are to support practitioners in the development of research-informed practice and to publish high quality research. We work with colleagues and organisations across early years, children’s workforce, primary schooling, secondary schooling, outdoor learning, youth work and further and higher education.
