From January 2023, we will be holding a series of online seminars to showcase and disseminate the main findings from the Collaborative Evidence Network (CEN) reports. The research projects, involving HEIs and other organisations, looked at impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on various aspects of the education system and on particular groups of learners.
