Our research programme underpins the work of the Council and supports the enhancement and promotion of the controlled sector.

We conduct analyses of existing data to gain a deeper understanding of the controlled sector, its strengths and weaknesses. 

Baseline data helps us:

  • recognise key issues and needs
  • identify areas for advocacy
  • identify examples of good practice and success.

One of the key areas we have explored is attainment and performance in the controlled sector.  We will continue to work in partnership with other organisations such as Ulster University and CCMS to investigate this issue and publish our findings.
