The Gatsby Charitable Foundation plans to sponsor three PhD studentships in technical education starting in October 2016.
The Gatsby Charitable Foundation values the role that research plays in improving the quality of technical education and are keen to support high-quality research in this area. We believe that investing in the training and development of new researchers is one way in which to cultivate policy-relevant research about technical education.
Beginning in October 2016, Gatsby plans to sponsor three PhD studentships to investigate technical education in the UK. Each PhD project will address a different aspect of one overarching topic: the capacity of the education system to deliver the non-graduate skills required by emerging technologies that are likely to underpin UK competitiveness in both innovative and established high-value industries.
