We have long championed the role that research plays in improving the quality of technical education, which is why we are planning to sponsor three PhD studentships next year to investigate different aspects of the technical education system in the UK.
Beginning in October 2016, we plan to sponsor three PhD studentships, each of which 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.
Each studentship includes three years’ worth of tuition fees for home or EU applicants, an annual living stipend, and some funding for research expenses. In addition to this financial support, we plan to offer the opportunity for students to produce at least one publication based on their work (in the form of a Gatsby report, similar to those available on our website) and complete a work placement (either with Gatsby or a partner organisation) lasting for up to twelve weeks.
